Welcome To The World Little One…

Hi Everyone,

I was on duty at Chanonry Point last night for the evening incoming tide, and I was very glad that I went. Sundance and a few others were right in at the Point ferreting around in the tidal current for fish but away in the distance was a lone adult that had a familiar looking dorsal fin. Using my hugest of camera lenses I was able to watch carefully and I noticed that a tiny baby dolphin was swimming alongside the adult. In the photo below (taken at very long range +500 metres in poor light) you can see the little dinky baby (or neonate as we call them) surfacing to breathe.

I think that this might be our first dolphin baby of the season and it is another calf for ID#440 “Sickle” – one of our lovely local females.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
