Still waiting for summer to arrive in the Moray Firth

Up here in the Moray Firth, in North East Scotland summer doesn’t really seem to have started at all with only a few days where the sun has come out and dried the place up a little. It makes preparing to go looking for bottlenose dolphins a bit of a chore as having to put waterproof gear on the camera equipment as well as myself and then take it off again and then put it all back on again not a great fun game really.  photo Rainy Charlie amp Kayaks.jpg
In the above photo you can see the dorsal fin of Kesslet’s son Charlie on the right of the dull, grey photo as he sweeps past two well behaved kayakers in a very rainy Kessock Channel recently…can we have summer soon please?

If you haven’t already, don’t forget you can also support WDC’s work when you adopt a dolphin – it also makes a perfect gift for a friend!
