 Yesterday our Living Seas volunteers carried out surveys throughout the day and had a number of marine mammal sightings. Notable sightings include Snowcap and her calf, who were leaping and lunging while Gannets and Gulls circled above, and Vader who was foraging around the fish factory. Dolphins were also seen to be head-slapping and a female Atlantic Grey Seal was seen swimming near the sea wall.
