Grey, Grey, Go Away…

Hi Everyone,

Sorry that it has been a while since I have posted anything but time has slipped by and sadly there is not a lot to tell you really. There have been very scant sightings of dolphins here and there but trying to get anything on camera is extremely difficult and the best I can get through the murky grey weather is mostly the tips of dorsal fins, like Bonnie and her youngster near Chanonry in the photo below.

I had a single dolphin in the Kessock Channel very briefly yesterday but due to the weather I couldn’t tell who it was. My buddy Alan spotted “Midnick” near Chanonry a few days ago and I had two dolphins firmly in my sights near Kilmuir a week or so ago so there are signs of life out there – keep an eye on my Twitter feed https://twitter.com/adoptadolphin for the latest news as I am out and about around the coast looking for our adoption dolphins.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
