This morning we wandered down to the lighthouse at Chanory Point. It was a very dull and misty morning. I went down to find the Dolphin…….Bingo!
I found them….put your glasses on and about dead centre on the opposite side of the firth there are not one but two Bottlenose Dolphin. I know they are Bottlenose because I met a chap from the Whale and Dolphin Preservation Society…..Can you imagine such a wonderful job…..Pickling Cetaceans or maybe smoking them. I didn’t like to push him too far on the details.
I found one a bit closer. The Dolphin man is promising a much better morning tomorrow so I’ll drag Bertha down to the point and get wonderful pictures in good light. I’ll take a pencil and paper so he can tell me what manner of beast I’ve snapped. I think he said this is a Common Dolphin but I can’t be certain as he was overloading me with information.
A brilliant morning and made all the better by meeting such a kind and knowledgeable man.
This place is well worth a look. I’m here till Saturday and will book a return visit.
