A Lovely Finish to the 2017 Dolphin Boat Work Season

Having my WDC colleague Ali Rose, the manager of our Scottish Dolphin Centre with me today onboard the Ecoventures, Cromarty RIB today was a real pleasure as we encountered dolphins not too far from harbour including adoption stars Mischief and Moonlight. We were playing host to a lovely family who are huge supporters of WDC and it was a great trip, even although it was a bit grey and rough but never mind – we were all very excited to have dolphins both sides of the boat and really close too – a great way for me to finish off my 2017 boat-based photo ID work. Many thanks to Sarah Pern and staff at Ecoventures for all their help and generosity again this season – what a wonderful team you are.
