There Be Dolphins…

Sightings of dolphins have been few and far between this month and I have only had my first proper sighting in the Inner Moray Firth yesterday. About 2 km out from the Rosemarkie shore where I was observing – a splash that was higher than the surrounding choppy sea indicated something breaching and lo and behold there it was – a young dolphin having fun with a few adults along side. After a few minutes scanning the whole area through my lovely Minox binoculars I discovered a few more Bottlenoses with adoption stars Mischief and Kesslet in amongst them. Brilliant – I was so pleased. The photo below is of the young breaching dolphin – possibly the youngster of Zephyr who was born last autumn and the photo is heavily cropped because of the distance involved so it’s not up to my usual quality – apologies.
