I ’Otter’ Get Back In...

Hi Everyone,

After seeing Kesslet and her baby then Charlie too the dolphin sightings have gone quiet again and the really wild weather up here hasn't helped in looking for them. What we have had is an increase in sightings of our lovely Otters with a female and two very squeaky and vocal big cubs being seen every other day. In the photo below you can see one of the cubs getting ready to dive back in the water...

A Dolphin Welcome to 2015 !

Hi Everyone,

I hope that all of you have had a nice festive season. I'm technically still on holiday for a few days yet but I though that I would share some nice news with you to welcome us into 2015, - Kesslet and her baby were around near the Kessock Bridge today, I had spotted them away up in the Kessock Channel then lost the sighting but half an hour later I had tracked them down and managed to get my first (albeit distant) dolphin pictures of 2015.

Seasons Greetings...

Hi Everyone, May I take this opportunity to thank all of you who, over the past year through e-mails, Tweets, Facebook likes, Blog comments and yes... even meeting me in person on the beach at Chanonry, North Kessock or at our Scottish Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay - have made my working year such a busy and enjoyable one.

We Have Dolphins !

Hi Everyone,

After days and days with seeing very little in the way of dolphins, today I was nearly taken by surprise as Kesslet and her baby came ambling past Chanonry through the fog...

and Charlie, her 7 year old son was with them too - difficult to get them all in the same shot so I took this one of Charlie coming quite close to the beach.

That Was A ‘Sealy’ Good Holiday...

Hi Everyone,

Apologies for the really rubbish title...well, that's me back to work after a two week break. We didn't go anywhere exotic but did manage to get up North for a couple of days to see how the Atlantic Grey seals are doing giving birth to their fluffy white pups. We managed to see some fairly close up without disturbing them, but where the bigger colony was situated, unfortunately, was impossible to get to due to a rock-fall.

On My ’Summer Holidays’

Hi Folks,

Well, that's my main dolphin season over for another year so it's time for a wee break but don't worry - I'll be back soon and I'll tell you if I was able to see any other nice wildlife. Mind you - I am spoiled where I am - very few things equal this sort of sight in my book...

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
