Happy Charlie !

Hi Everyone,

The sightings at Chanonry are not too bad at present, I’m getting occasional visits by Sundance, Rainbow and Mischief but the normal social group that is turning up in the rising tides at Chanonry tends to be made up of Zephyr, Breeze, Scoopy, Kesslet and of course Charlie. Charlie was having a bit of fun with his young pal Breeze yesterday and sometimes Kesslet was joining in the nonsense too – lovely to see. Here are a couple of shots of my young namesake at Chanonry, the light was very grey and flat again but at least it was dry !

The tides are a bit awkward over the next few days but I’ll be out and about to see who’s showing a fin above the surface!

Best Wishes,

Charlie
