Adopt a Dolphin

Dolphins in WDC’s adopt a dolphin programme doing well

According to a report published by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), with research undertaken by Aberdeen University, around 200 bottlenose dolphins make the Moray Firth and Scottish north east coast their home, and the population is ‘stable'.

WDC warmly welcomes this news. The population was at one time estimated to be around 130 dolphins, so this appears to show an increase, though there is now much more dedicated research and monitoring.

Adopt a dolphin star, Kesslet is back in town!

After a week or two of sporadic and very brief sightings of WDC adopt a dolphin star, Kesslet out past Rosemarkie Bay, it was a lovely sight at the end of last week to see her for the first time this season hunting in the Kessock Channel. This is the narrow area of water in the north east of Scotland, between the city of Inverness and the Black Isle village of North Kessock.

Can we have some dolphins please?

It has been unusually quiet for dolphin sightings around the Inner Moray Firth over the festive holiday period and I was hoping that by this stage in January that I would have something to tell you and maybe even a photo or two to show but no luck so far I'm afraid.

Seasons Greetings...

Very best wishes to all of you lovely dolphin adopters and supporters out there from all of us at WDC - I'm hoping to be out and about soon after New Year having a good look round for anything out there with a dorsal fin but until then -  have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year !

Some Sightings Out There...

I had word from a contact of mine the other day who does bird watching at Tarbat Ness in the Dornoch Firth, a bit North from here, that he spotted over fifteen Bottlenose dolphins hunting for fish with lots of gull activity overhead.

Nobody Here But Kesslet...

It's a quiet time for seeing dolphins at the moment - nearly all the local dolphins are away out to sea, looking for tasty herring to scoff but every now and then a dorsal fin will break the surface - like WDC Adopt a Dolphin star Kesslet who has been seen popping in and out of her home territory in the Kessock Cha
