Having A Mad 5 Minutes....

Hi Everyone,

Sundance was getting totally the wrong way up very early this morning, 45+ dolphins around Chanonry Point in the early tide - amazing - I have not seen so many dolphins in the area for years!

Fun in the sun......

Hi Everyone,

Lots of calf socialising going on at Chanonry Point today, these two young dolphins are Raindrop and 440's calf that doesn't have a name yet.

Happy Days Are Here Again........

Good runs of salmon and sea trout have been keeping the dolphins busy over the last few days. Let's hope that this keeps up and makes up for a very poor June and most of July.

Follow You, Follow Me....

Some nice dolphin social behaviour seen recently while I was out doing a Photo ID survey with the Lighthouse Field Station, these dolphins were pretty close to our boat (Moonlight was amongst them) and seemed to be doing a sort of dolphin "conga" or a game of follow my leader. Whatever it means socially, it certainly looks like a lot of fun!

Gone Fishin'.........

Hi Everyone,

The weather and dolphin activity has gone a bit flat recently, rain, rain, wind...give us poor dolphin field officers some sun for a change!

A Windy Week!

Hi Everyone,

The weather at Chanonry Point where I work has been a bit iffy recently, with rain and gale force winds - sometimes it's been difficult to stand up, but dolphins have been around including Sundance, Moonlight, Nevis and Rainbow. The photo is of Rainbows big son - Prism, who has been around playing with his little brother, Raindrop.

Here Comes Summer!

Hi Everyone,

This latest spell of great weather has been good for cetacean watching all along the Firth. Dolphins have been a bit sporadic at Chanonry Point but are being seen right along the coast, as well as Minke whales and Porpoises. If anyone is thinking of coming up this way to see dolphins then get in touch and I'll try and let you know what's happening.
