Stop Playing With Your Food Mischief !

Hi Everyone,

I had a fantastic Photo ID trip with my friends from Aberdeen University’s Lighthouse Field Station yesterday. We eventually saw about 50 dolphins in total, spread out all the way to Nairn along the coast and Spirit and her baby plus Mischief were among the first dolphins that we encountered. Spirit and her youngster are looking great and when we first spotted them they were just chilling out with another big dolphin and then all of a sudden we saw Mischief attacking something in the water – a big salmon, and not only did we see the initial strike but he threw it around for a while until he was satisfied that he could swallow it properly…talk about playing with your food !
