Latest sightings of Moray Firth adoption dolphins

The seasonal migratory salmon run is a little better at the moment with dolphins tucking in to tasty fish – as you can see in the photo below of ID#1025 “Charlie”, 8 year old son of Adopt a Dolphin “Kesslet” and his huge catch that will do very nicely for lunch.

My sightings of the adoption dolphins have been very good in the last few weeks with Rainbow, Spirit, Sundance, Mischief and Kesslet all being within camera range. Moonlight and her baby have been a little elusive of late but my friends at Aberdeen University’s Lighthouse Field Station have come across her on a recent survey and all is well. Some of the other female dolphins are producing tiny babies after a year or so’s gestation and its always lovely to see the tiny little bundles of joy next to their proud mums.
