We Have Dolphins…At Long Last !

Hi Everyone,

I had a good but VERY cold, grey morning at Chanonry Point with my buddy Alan – some of our local Bottlenose dolphins were about for the first time in any numbers this year including adoption dolphins Mischief and Sundance. Great to see them – about 8 dolphins in and around Fortrose Bay then Chanonry but further away in Rosemarkie Bay there were a few more so maybe a dozen in total.

I’m hoping that I see dolphins on a more regular basis now as it has been VERY quiet just recently.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
