Weather Conditions: sunny/fair, Wind direction: S/SE, Sea state 1-2
Six land-based surveys were conducted by our volunteers yesterday, with a variety of wildlife recorded. Grey seals were seen from the survey point during the early morning and late afternoon watches – observed to be resting and foraging close to the fish factory and to the harbour wall. The most notable period of the day came at 1pm, when dolphins (including juveniles) were frequently spotted displaying a wide range of behaviours including travelling, leaping, foraging and chasing fish at times only meters from the wall. Other sightings include gannets, razorbill and turnstones.
