The Seahorse Trust, based in Tospham, is celebrating the discovery of three spiny seahorses in an area of seagrass meadow at a secret location.
Neil Garrick-Maidment, trust founder, said the sightings had been reported to the Seahorse Trust national database. He said: “We cannot, for obvious reasons, say exactly where the seagrass bed is, but it was in the eastern side of Weymouth Bay - a site we have never dived before. It gives us good hope there are some seagrass sites still undamaged and with seahorses in them.”
