Meanwhile…Out at Sea
The sightings of dolphins around Chanonry Point have gone rather quiet for the past week so I ventured out onto the water recently courtesy of Ecoventures, the local tour boat operator at Cromarty to see if I could find dolphins a little bit farther out to sea and yes, we did manage to catch up with three of the WDC Adopt a Dolphin stars, Moonlight, Rainbow and away in the distance – Mischief. Moonlight, as you can see in the photo below was happily munching on a fish as she travelled past us…
Meanwhile a little further out Rainbow and her young son Indigo were bow-riding with a ship coming into the Cromarty Firth – great to watch just how effortless they make this seem.
Mischief and a group of other dolphins were away in the distance – too far to get useful images but there was Mackerel flying everywhere and suddenly near our boat, Moonlight’s young son was getting some hunting practise in, throwing a Mackerel in the air that was promptly pinched by a passing gull. It is like the old saying says…don’t play with your food !
