That's More Like It Boys !

Hi Everyone,

The activity at Chanonry has, at long last shifted up a gear with about a dozen dolphins hunting in the current last evening. Kesslet and Charlie were there, (they were in Kessock in the morning tide) joined by Sundance, Rainbow, Squat Fin, Zephyr and Breeze, Sickle and her calf and some of the older calves like Yoda, Bodhi and an eight year old juvenile called Mini Fin. It was pretty cold, although nice and sunny and in the photo below you can see three of the young guns having a lark around.

There were some salmon being caught last night, which is great news as the rivers around here are not doing very well with the fish returning from the sea.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
