Who’s a Cheeky Boy Then?

Hi Everyone, I had a nice afternoon at Chanonry Point with around eight of our dolphins yesterday – the weather was going between lovely sunshine and then grey, heavy showers but it was great to be out in the open watching my lovely big friends. In the photo below you can see ID#1025 “Charlie” coming racing towards the point after being out in the distance with a few of his buddies. Charlie is the son of Kesslet – one of the six bottlenose dolphins that you can adopt with us. photo CharliePortrait.jpg The salmon that are migrating back are still a bit on the low side just now but I did see a couple being chased down and caught a fair distance out from Chanonry. I need to get out to sea however to track down more of our local dolphins who are a bit camera shy at the moment. Best Wishes – Charlie (the human, not the dolphin!)
