One survey was undertaken yesterday during which our Living Seas Volunteer spotted five bottlenose dolphins including one juvenile.  They were observed foraging and leaping whilst travelling in a south easterly direction.  There were also several sightings of Atlantic grey seals along the coast totaling 10 individuals.  Records of jellyfish are continuing with large numbers of compass and barrel jellyfish being spotted.
