Out Of The Blue…

Hi Everyone,

I had a lovely day on Tuesday working with Simon and Pippa from North 58 Sea Adventures in Findhorn filming with the Childrens BBC “Wild” TV crew. We saw lovely Common & Grey Seals and then later on near the Skerries at Lossiemouth we encountered around 20 of our Bottlenose dolphins who kept us company back to Findhorn. The young girls in the programme loved it – as did the crew. The photo below shows a very inquisitive calf that whizzed over to see us a few times.

Dolphin activity is a little bit quieter around North Kessock and Chanonry just now with only a limited amount of dolphins due to a lull in the salmon run. Hopefully this will speed up again soon.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
