Just Ticking Over…

Hi Everyone,

Dolphin sightings and actual activity are pretty much just ticking over at the moment – I caught a little bit of romping around by ID#1085 “Breeze” beside his auntie Squat Fin yesterday…

No adoption dolphins have been in at Chanonry for a few days now, even Kesslet and Charlie have gone missing but one of our old adoption dolphins ID#30 “Jigsaw” made another appearance at Chanonry and headed away with Zephyr, Tall Fin and her calf and a few others. Difficult to say how old a dolphin like Jigsaw could be but 50 years old is not unlikely. A grand old lady, still looking lovely with her very distinctive white fin fringe and big notch out of her dorsal fin.

The weather has turned really bitter and wet but hopefully I’ll get out after lunch for a rootle around and see who is hunting at Chanonry.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
