Dolphin who survived severe sunburn has baby


Spirtle, the dolphin who made the headlines after being badly sunburned while she was stranded in Scotland in 2016 has now given birth to a calf.

Spirtle is a bottlenose dolphin and  part of the resident population living in the waters around the Moray Firth. She was close to death after spending 24 hours stuck on the shore but she was spotted by passers by, refloated and survived severe sunburn that still marks her skin today.  And now, to add to her amazing story, she now seems to have a baby too!
