Hi Everyone,

I had a lovely afternoon at Chanonry yesterday – just as I was about to leave to double check back at Kessock, dolphins arrived and it was great to see up close for the first time this season – Kesslet, Charlie, Zephyr, Breeze and Scoopy. All were looking good and some had new scratches and marks, including Kesslet so it looks as though it has been an eventful winter – in the picture below you can see Kesslet popping up for a look.

I’m hoping that the dolphin activity will get better from now on and will let you know through this blog, Facebook and Twitter the minute that I see any of the other adoption dolphins.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
