August Adopt A Dolphin Update

Dolphins are scattered over a large area of the Inner Moray Firth at this time of year as the seasonal “menu” starts to change but I’m glad to report that I’m still encountering all six of the WDC Adopt a Dolphin stars on a regular basis. Kesslet has been popping in and out of the Kessock Channel and Inverness Harbour area and Sundance and Mischief have been seen by me from Chanonry Point and the Cromarty Firth in all weathers plus Rainbow and Spirit are seen a lot up near the Cromarty Firth at the moment due to the Mackerel shoals that are keeping the dolphins fed nicely. Moonlight and her young son have been there too, as has her older son, Lunar, who came powering up to the Ecoventures wildlife watching boat that I was on where he checked us out before scooting off to go and see his Mum and younger brother. Great to see this lovely, handsome young dolphin up so close – a real happy character.
