That's A Bit Close Kesslet !

Hi Everyone,

I managed to watch Kesslet and Charlie for a half hour or so yesterday (thanks to Sue at Merkinch LNR for texting me) as they hunted for snacks around the legs of the Kessock Bridge. If you look at the bottom of the photo you can see Kesslets curved fin and in front of her is Charlie but he is lower in the water and not easy to see.

Using a camera body borrowed from my darling wife (new gear coming soon) and my big lens I took some shots of the two of them SO close to the bridge legs, they must have been scraping the concrete with their bodies. Mind you, the concrete is covered in weed and that attracts fish so maybe it’s not so scratchy.

No sightings of any of the other adoption dolphins at the moment foks…sorry 🙁 – the minute I see anyone else you will read it here just after I’ve Twittered about it.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
