Close Encounters…

Hi Everyone, I was lucky enough to see and photograph some of our resident dolphins while out doing fieldwork yesterday. The weather had improved a great deal and there was hardly a ripple on the water. In the photo below you can see my namesake “Charlie” ID#1025 going over to check out a local family in their small inflatable boat that happened to be in the Chanonry Point area – the kids on the boat were thrilled at having this “close encounter”. Charlie’s Mum, Kesslet was just out of shot and the two of them left the Chanonry area soon after heading in towards Inverness, closely followed on by ID#748 “Scoopy” and ID#1085 “Breeze”.  photo CharlieampBoat_zps2a1d940e.jpg Please remember that you can adopt six of our lovely dolphins through WDC.

Best Wishes, Charlie.
