It's Like They're on Elastic !

Hi Everyone,

I overheard a lady this morning at Chanonry Point commenting on the lovely, synchronised surfacing rhythm that Zephyr and Breeze have – where they seem to pop up in the same spot time after time…”It’s amazing, it’s like they are on elastic !”

Only the two dolphins this morning in the very glarey, cold blue light (difficult to get good photos in this light sometimes) but I have just had a phone call from Dolphin Trips Avoch to say that they have just spotted three or four dolphins in Fortrose Bay including a year old youngster…I wonder who that could be??

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
