Updates from Stevo around the coast

Thursday 29th August 
Stevo and Chris went to Mwnt at 1pm.
And soon as we sat down and started to see a mother and calf pair of Bottlenose Dolphins came to view right in front of the headland and also a motor boat stopped whilst the Bottlenose Dolphins making their way traveling eastwards out of view.
And then nothing was seen for half and hour.
At 2pm  a single Bottlenose Dolphin a very quick glimpse of and and  dissapered  At the end of our 2 hour watch when we left the station as we were walking back to the car at 14:45pm.
We  sighted a Grey Seal giving good views of.
The sea condition was calm rippled surface with a westerly winds 
Cheers
Stevo


Thursday 5th September 
Results of sightings from Mwnt that we all saw right through the summer period.
During our 2 hour watches so far is.
17 Bottlenose Dolphins with lots of calfs recorded
and 4 Harbour Porpoises.
Animals numbered all together is 21.
Mwnt is a beautiful place to visit and very peaceful to watch.
Anyhow this week no Bottlenose Dolphins were sighted when Chris and I observed the Cardigan Bay.
on our watch this year there are fewer sightings of Bottlenose Dolphins.
We think because they are off on all on summer holidays ! Joke 
Cheers
