SeaSeal Update 16/06/2018: Atlantic Grey Seals and Bottlenose Dolphins

Weather conditions: sunny, sea state 4, wind direction SW

Our SeaSeal volunteer saw a variety of wildlife up at Birds Rock yesterday evening. A group of bottlenose dolphins were seen travelling towards New Quay and an Atlantic grey seal was spotted in the water! Lots of seabirds flew past the cliffs including red-billed choughs and a leucistic herring gull.

During yesterday’s SeaSeal survey, two Atlantic grey seals were spotted swimming past Birds Rock, in choppy sea conditions. There was also a high level of bird activity, including herring gulls nest building, choughs feeding and, at one point, a single kestrel flying past.
