Adopt a dolphin star, Kesslet is back in town!

After a week or two of sporadic and very brief sightings of WDC adopt a dolphin star, Kesslet out past Rosemarkie Bay, it was a lovely sight at the end of last week to see her for the first time this season hunting in the Kessock Channel. This is the narrow area of water in the north east of Scotland, between the city of Inverness and the Black Isle village of North Kessock. She was right in the fast current, hunting for salmon with her powerful echolocation system and despite the really strong wind and rough sea, I hope you enjoy the picture I managed to get of her as she surfaced to breathe. Great to see you back big girl!

Did you know you can adopt Kesslet for yourself or as a gift and follow her adventures with monthly email updates? Sign up now
