It's a glorious late winter day on the Black Isle with fresh snow on the hills (Ben Wyvis in the distance in first photo), calm sea, flowering gorse and a touch of warmth in the sun - I feel very lucky.

We went out to Chanonry Point tonight for a walk along the beach... turns out it was also dinner time for the Moray Firth dolphins! My face was 😮for a solid 20 minutes while they were breaching and tossing the salmon about. Amazing. #chanonrypoint #dolphins #morayfirth #highlands

Probably about 100 dolphins in the water, my camera died after the 4.5 hours so here's an iPhone video of them playing after feeding #chanonrypoint #WILDDolphins #emptythetanks 16/05/17 #ScotlandsDolphins

Early morning beach run with the dug. #BlackIsle #Fortrose #beach #chanonrypoint

Hiding to get a shot of a Heron through the gorse. Chanonry Point is in the distance. Turned out that it wasn't scared at all after I decided to get it flying off for a shot by scaring it. Nothing would move it.. then a crow showed me how it's done. #heron #gorse #morayfirth #wildlife #chanonrypoint #highlandscenery

Procrastination on a Monday. From my kitchen window, at this time of year, the hillside in the distance turns a hazy shade of blue. I've looked at it for the previous two springs we've lived here and admired the sea of bluebells from afar. But today I decided I really had to see them close-up. ·

And it was worth it. Now I'm ready for a productive week. ·

I can't help wondering how many more years the bluebells will dominate the spring flora - there isn't any woodland cover any more, so I suspect that in time other species will outcompete the bluebells. ·

You lighthouse up my life #lighthouse #chanonrypoint #naedolphins

Up early for a change. Loop of Ord Hill then a ride through the wasteland to the old Nairn Road that follows the shore across the firth.. then back through to the campus on the back roads and paths.#bikeride #mtb #ardersier #chanonrypoint #kilmuir #morayfirth #sunsout but not for long.

This dog has been on many adventures with us.... #staffy #staffordshirebullterrier #chanonrypoint #dolphinmile #beach #sea #adoptdontshop

Lighthouse at chanonry point... #lighthouse #scotland #bluesky #sky #chanonrypoint

2 hours standing in the freezing rain and wind in shorts but we managed to see Bottle nosed dolphins, terrible picture but I couldn't feel my fingers. #chanonrypoint #bottlenosedolphins

I had heard about the great dolphin displays you can see from Chanonry Point in Scotland so convinced my family to head up from Kingussie, where we were staying, in the hope of seeing them. I expected to walk on to the beach and see them jumping out of the water but after an hour of standing there in the cold North Sea wind and seeing nothing we decided to head for a cuppa to warm up.
☕️
We took one last look in the hope of seeing the dolphins and low and behold we could see them leaping out of the water. I ran across the pebbles to the point and weaved my way around the many photographers, hoping to get a shot. Capturing an image of them leaping out of the water is extremely difficult as you have no way of knowing where they'll leap from next!
🐬
This was the only keeper I got but I'll certainly be heading back there to have another attempt soon.
