A great morning for sightings saw dolphins coming right into New Quay Harbour, and they were continually seen in every survey throughout the day. Dolphins were usually observed travelling or foraging, but were also seen socialising and mingling at the surface later in the morning. It was also an interesting day for birds, with sightings of a razorbill, fulmar and Mediterranean gulls.
