A ’Bonnie’ Fish For Breakfast…

Hi Everyone,

I did one of my “low tide ’til high tide” shifts at Chanonry Point very early yesterday as the weather was reasonable for a change and I had a few dolphins sighted & identified during the 6 hours or so. The first dolphin to appear just after sunrise was big ID#706 – a solitary male that I haven’t seen at Chanonry at all this season so I was really happy at seeing him happy and healthy and he caught a lovely big fish. Then ID#744 “Bonnie” and her year old calf came and joined him for a while but he, shy boy that he is, moved away to finish his fish in peace. Bonnie chased after a big fish and then brought it back into the tidal current and I got a few nice frames of her breakfast in the improving light.

A bit later, Sundance came wandering past with Zephyr, Breeze and ID#990 “Flake” but they didn’t hang around and headed back out to sea having not found any fish for themselves.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
