It a real tempest out there in the waters of the Moray Firth today. People often ask "What do dolphins do in bad weather?" and the simple answer is...they just dive down a few feet and all is relatively serene and calm compared to what its like at the surface.
After a bit of a quiet spell in this area some dolphins are beginning to break the waters surface - even if its at a distance like this shot of Adopt A Dolphin Kesslet's son Charlie doing a nice inverted breach near Rosemarkie Bay.
Seasons Greetings from a chilly North Kessock in Scotland - although I personally have a nice warm glow inside as I was watching WDC Adopt a Dolphin star "Kesslet" this morning with her little baby, only four months old and having great fun with big brother "Charlie" - the three dolphins were in the Kessock Channel
Hanging around a chilly beach in December might not sound like everyones cup of tea but it was well worth it this morning as my friends Alan, David and Anne and I not only spotted Zephyr and her youngster near Chanonry Point but coming the other way were adopt a dolphin Kesslet and her wee baby, both looking great - plus Kesslets big son Charli
I had a very, very cold three hours session at Chanonry Point this morning but it was well worth it.
