Towards the end of the 9am survey a group of 6 dolphins entered the bay past the headland and were observed foraging in the area between the harbour wall and the Cardinal Marker. The following survey recorded a further ten dolphins including a juvenile. During this survey a female Atlantic grey seal was observed north of the harbour wall together with the rare sightings of a group of migrating Whimbrel and an Iceland Gull. The afternoon brought a further two dolphins far off the headland.
