Latest sightings of Moray Firth adoption dolphins

Summer seems to be struggling to start up here in the Moray Firth with the poor weather being a bit of a challenge and a very erratic salmon run is causing the dolphins to be scattered over a wide area instead of concentrated at Chanonry Point.

I have managed however to see all of the Adopt a Dolphin individuals recently – all are looking well and moving about the Firth in search of other food sources like mackerel and herring. Out on the water last week I caught up with a group of dolphins including Rainbow, Sundance and Mischief and also this very curious youngster who is “spy-hopping” beside us to have a look at who or what we are.
