Some Sad News…

Hi Everyone, I have a wee bit of sad news about Kesslet’s baby that was born in September last year and who I photographed this year on January the 6th down near the Kessock Bridge looking happy and healthy. Between then and a few weeks ago something has happened and I don’t see the baby travelling with her and Charlie. I had my suspicions as I have spotted Kesslet twice very briefly near Inverness Harbour alone and frustratingly I haven’t been able to get any close up pictures yet – but my buddy Alan Ward has seen Kesslet and Charlie passing Chanonry Point yesterday (an hour after I left!) and took the photo below that shows Charlie (nearest the camera) with his Mum behind him but no little brother or sister. Grateful thanks to Alan for permission to use the photo.  photo Alans KampC Photo.jpg It’s very sad to lose a little one like this but they don’t all survive for a variety of complex reasons but I won’t and can’t speculate as to what happened. Best Wishes, Charlie.
