Out and About…

Hi Everyone,

The weather has been improving over the last few days and it is great to get back out and about looking for dolphins. The photo below shows me standing at Chanonry recently taking photos of dolphins with my big camera and tripod. Thanks to my pal Alan for taking the photo. The dolphins in the photo are Bonnie and Zephyr coming to the surface for a quick breath before diving again for ages trying to find some salmon.

We are starting to see local dolphins like Zephyr and Scoopy beginning to appear daily at Chanonry Point and Kesslet caught a nice salmon yesterday in the Kessock Channel so with a bit of luck some more of the adoption dolphins might start to make their way in from the open sea to see me.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
