Sightings Update....

Hi Everyone,

Just a quickie to say that Sundance and Nevis were both at Chanonry Point this morning. It was absolutely rotten weather and was one of the very few occassions where I have been camera-less watching dolphins!

Best Wishes,


First Whale Watch of 2008!

Captain John Boats did a precedent setting, first whale watch trip in March (30th). We went out Sunday morning in a brisk NW wind (wind chill was 15F/-9C), seas were 3-6ft (1-2m) and the group was from Missouri (about as landlocked as you can get in the middle of the country- i.e. not a lot of experience being on the water).

Intelligent Neighbours

New Scientist Magazine (I have to admit I am a longtime fan of this popular science magazine) has had a series of articles on the search of extraterrestial intelligence and this week the coverage has encouraged a number of letters on the subject.

Vive La France...

I'm just back from a freezing Chanonry Point having gone along with Martin Hind, our local Coastal Ranger, and a group of really nice, keen French agriculture and biology students who are here to see part of the Highlands biodiversity and hopefully some wildlife. Sadly the weather was against us but the sleet and snow stopped for half an hour while we showed them round the Point.

15 Seconds from Salt Cay

While we're waiting for our field season in New England to start, Vale is still seeing, and hearing, whales in the Turks and Caicos! Check out the song she recently recorded. For those who adopt whales, this is the song that "your" whale either heard (if it's a female) or sang (if it's a male).
