Adopt a Dolphin Sightings Update

At long last I have managed to get ID#969 “Spirit” within camera range, the last of the six adoption dolphins to show up this season along with her latest youngster who will be two years old this autumn – they are the very last two dolphins at the left of the photo below. Spirits oldest daughter, Sparkle has had her own baby late last year and I have spotted the two of them about at Chanonry last week – it would be great to get them all in the same frame, even better if Spirits other daughter Shimmer would show up for a family reunion but maybe that’s wishful thinking.

Meanwhile Moonlight has been hunting in great style at Chanonry Point for migratory salmon…

The light levels recently for photography – even although it’s now June, have been very poor but thankfully the adoption dolphins have not been too distant so that I can get reasonable photos. Rainbow and her son Indigo are regular visitors to Chanonry as are Sundance and Mischief who are in top form just now. The same could be said of Kesslet who has the Kessock Channel and Inverness Harbour all to herself and sometimes Charlie for company too. It’s looking like a great summer of sightings ahead.
