The sightings of dolphins around Chanonry Point have gone rather quiet for the past week so I ventured out onto the water recently courtesy of Ecoventures, the local tour boat operator at Cromarty to see if I could find dolphins a little bit farther out to sea and yes, we did manage to catch up with three of the WDC Ad
It has been a great, very busy week of dolphin activity at Chanonry Point, Scotland.
There have been reasonable amounts of dolphins in the Chanonry Point area just recently, however the tides have been poor and it has taken the dolphins until halfway through the rising tide to really arrive properly and start to hunt.
Thankfully this particular Rainbow doesn't need much chasing around to find - it was great to see adoptadolphin star ID#31 "Rainbow" getting a bit lively recently on an early morning tide at Chanonry Point.
At long last I have managed to get ID#969 "Spirit" within camera range, the last of the six adoption dolphins to show up this season along with her latest youngster who will be two years old this autumn - they are the very last two dolphins at the left of the photo below.
My dolphin "season" is getting busier by the day as more of the regularly seen dolphins re-appear after the winter.
Despite a bitterly cold north-easterly wind, conditions at Chanonry Point yesterday were pretty much ideal for dolphin watching with a good incoming tide, nice sunshine, some migrating salmon and of course - a good active sub group of the resident Bottlenose dolphins.
ID#866 "Zephyr" and her eight month old baby were at a very cold and rough Chanonry Point this morning and even in the hail and sleet - this little bundle of joy just looked gorgeous...
