Waiting For Some Action…

Hi Everyone,

I’m in a state of limbo at the moment where not much seems to be happening locally. There have been some sightings coming in to me from far and wide however, indeed our very own Scottish Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay had some great action for their first dolphin sightings of 2012 just this morning with 10 or so dolphins with some youngsters, some were having a good old breach to themselves like Sundance and Beatrice in this archive photo.

I’m hoping that it’s not going to be too long before I see some nice dolphin breaching myself…

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
