Autumn Arrives in the Moray Firth

In the last week or two the air has had a distinct chill in it sometimes and nearly all the migratory salmon are being replaced by shoals of herring and mackerel. I was out at sea with my friends from Aberdeen University’s Lighthouse Field Station for a dolphin Photo ID trip recently and we had to spend a long time finding any dolphins to photograph but when we did we came across nearly quarter of the entire population. There were dolphins of all sizes, from tiny babies right up to fully grown adults – like the two in the photo below, ID#818 and ID#990 having a social session not far from the boat.

It is always lovely to come across new baby dolphins and we had around four recorded over the course of the day that we already knew about but we came across another neonate (newborn) and can’t seem to recognise the mum – oh I love puzzles!
