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.
