Hi Everyone,

The sudden torrential rain that we have had over the last wee while has made photographing any dolphins that have been around a bit of a challenge. I got soaked at Chanonry yesterday but was delighted to find big “Scoopy” ID #748 pottering around in the distance on his own at North Kessock when I got back and dried off a bit.

A few days before, Kesslet and her son Charlie were catching salmon in the fast flowing current and here you can see Charlie in front of his Mum with a tail of a fish sticking out of his mouth.

Hopefully some dolphins will turn up in dry weather at Chanonry soon !

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
