Yesterday our volunteers carried out land and boat surveys all day and had some amazing sightings. Dolphins were seen on every land survey, including frequently seen Snowcap and her calf, mostly foraging near the fish factory or cardinal buoy. In addition four Harbour Porpoise and an Atlantic Grey Seal were seen. Bird life was exciting too; we saw Gannets, Grey Wagtails, Oystercatchers and a rarely seen Bridled Guillemot.
