No-one Here But Us Seals…

Hi Everyone,

We have been having some glorious weather up here in the Moray Firth and it has been lovely getting out and about to try and track some dolphins down. The dolphins just aren’t reading the script properly at present, as there is almost nothing about with a dorsal fin at all (apart from one small Porpoise in the Kessock Channel the other day) but I did have a lovely young Grey Seal near the Point this morning having a look round before diving underwater again to go in search of a fishy snack.

I’m meeting some of my WDC colleagues on Friday morning at Chanonry so I’m crossing everything that’s crossable that we might just catch sight of a dorsal fin or two…not too much to ask for now is it?

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
