Just Like Kids…

Hi Everyone,

Dolphins have been fairly consistent around Chanonry for the last week or so, with Sundance, Kesslet and Rainbow turning up most days. Moonlight is still being conspicous by her absence, seen up near Cromarty but giving Chanonry a wide berth for reasons known only to her. My colleague Simon from our Dolphin & Seal Centre was round at Chanonry doing Shorewatch on a pouring wet day and is sure that Mischief was there but that big character is still mostly schmoozing the ladies up past Cromarty I think. You are almost guaranteed that if Kesslet and Charlie arrive at the Point when Zephyr and young Breeze are there that you will get some nice energetics, like this shot of Breeze jumping in front of Charlie…

When you see these young dolphins having fun together it’s spooky just how like human youngsters they are and the way that they behave mirrors how our kids run around, misbehave, get into scrapes and learn from their experiences.

I’m down in Chippenham for the next three days at our head office but I’ll check out the dolphins as soon as I get back.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
