Hanging Out With Your Mates…

Hi Everyone,

What started off as a disappointing morning at Chanonry (I missed a group) actually turned out brilliant as we ended up with yet another big group of dolphins in the Kessock Channel. Sundance, Moonlight and Lunar, Mischief, Jigsaw, Rainbow and baby, Kesslet and Charlie plus another ten dolphins at least were all over the place at Kessock and by the time I arrived there and was phoning up to Elsa in the Dolphin & Seal Centre to tell her who I could see it was pouring rain. That didn’t stop the dolphins however and great to see Charlie, Breeze, Lunar and one or two of the other youngsters hanging out and socialising.

Hopefully better weather tomorrow and some action at Chanonry would be very welcome.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
