Lifting The Spirits

While out on an unplanned and unexpected boat trip last Sunday I was really pleased to see a group of dolphins heading west past Hopeman on the Moray Firth coast. As we got a little closer in the grey and rough sea I realised that I could see a few familiar dorsal fins belonging to some of the female dolphins that I know pretty well and sure enough there was "Sickle" and "Lilith" plus some youngsters and wedged tightly in amongst them was WDC Adopt a Dolphin "Spirit" who I haven't managed to see yet this season so I was very pleased - frustratingly I just couldn't manage to get a decent dorsal fin shot amongst all the spray but in the photo below Spirit is the dolphin surfacing to breathe nearest the camera with her friend "Sickle" to her left. Now that I am happy that I have seen her hopefully I will get to see much more of her over the summer nearer to home around Cromarty and Chanonry Point.
