A Freezing but Fabulous Morning of Dolphins…

I had a very, very cold three hours session at Chanonry Point this morning but it was well worth it. Unusually for this time of year there were between twelve and fifteen dolphins moving around as if hunting for some sort of fish in the distance – and there was quite a lot of social activity too,  like Adopt a Dolphin star Moonlight in the photo below, breaching beautifully at well over 1.5km’s distance from where my huge camera and I were located. I spotted Kesslet and her baby yesterday but couldn’t be sure if she was in this big group today but Mischief and Sundance certainly were – two more of the dolphins that you support by adopting with WDC. I couldn’t get sharp pictures of them sadly because of the atmospheric conditions – like a heat shimmer across the water but it was wonderful to see them all active and having some shenanigans in the sunshine.
