Adopt A Dolphin Update

The weather in this later part of October has been wonderful – meaning I have had plenty of opportunity for getting out and tracking down the Adopt a Dolphin individual dolphins that you so generously support. I have spotted all of the “super six” although only fleeting glimpses of Rainbow and Spirit but otherwise thanks to the generosity of Sarah at Ecoventures in Cromarty I have spent a large amount of my work time this month out at sea and lately big Mischief and Moonlight with her young son have been coming alongside the boat to say hello, and its great to see them looking so well fed (tubby) and being social as the autumn draws on. Spirit and Rainbow have been always that little bit further away but great to see them none the less and Kesslet and her little baby are moving around the Inner Firth sometimes with Kesslets son Charlie for company. Sundance has been in and out of the Cromarty Firth and up and down the coast so he’s still being a busy boy. The photo below shows a very recent close encounter with Moonlight and son plus Mischief’s big tail is in the photo too.
