Dolphins Ahoy !

Hi Everyone, I had a bit of a rough and grey trip out with Ecoventures at Cromarty yesterday but it was well worth it as we came across 15+ dolphins surfing through the swell including big Sundance who is sporting some big new scratches on his dorsal fin and close by him was another female dolphin called Sickle and then Moonlight and Lunar. Sarah from Ecoventures told me that she had Mischief near the boat the day before so it’s good to know that these dolphins are still about as winter draws in. Sadly I didn’t see Spirit or Rainbow this time but there are some big groups of dolphins out there so I might catch up with them yet.
