DOLPHIN WATCHING AT THE BLACK ISLE
Bottlenose Dolphins (bits of)
The weekend weather went a bit downhill, once again. After Saturday's lovely start we were back to showers but at least it's been a bit warmer! We had a day up to the Black Isle for some Dolphin & birdwatching. The Bottlenose Dolphins at Chanonry point is one of the finest places in Europe to observe these wonderful creatures. They come very close to land so its a really good spot to see them if you're not on the water. Like all wildlife though, it is mostly down to luck and timing if you get a good sighting. Not many dolphins breaching above the water today but plenty of fins and tails to tease! Lots of bird life to keep you happy though.
