The Lady of Firth… Missing?
A dull, dark day out on the Firth saw us enjoying our encounters today in the rain! Through the murk, we managed to spot one of our locals, but not the usual loner; this time it was Charlie! Without his mum in the vicinity (not the river, not in the Beauly or out past the bridge), it was quite surreal to see him. That being said, he was ever the playful boy that we know him to be, playing with the boat and showing off his catches when we saw him at 12 and 4. Thankfully we know now that Kesslet really wasn’t all too far away; hunting further up towards Redcastle for sea trout on her own. Charlie Phillips was lucky enough to get a fleeting glimpse of the troublesome two from shore, but a hungry Kesslet managed to sneak past our boat in her quest for food. At least her son is a bit more sociable!
Super Cute Sightings
We’ve all heard the “rising tide” recommendation for dolphin sightings, but now there’s another reason to consider hopping aboard at the low tide or falling tide – our seals! You may remember a couple of blogs ago we spoke of the newest face to appear in the Moray Firth, in the form of a cute little harbour seal pup. Well it seems they’re hanging around the area, as they’ve been spotted on the mudflats every day since the birth of the little one! With a cute face like that, how can you say no! We haven’t had any other births yet, or any other new pups spotted, but trust us when we say we’ll be keeping you updated if we do!
What will we see tomorrow? Will Kesslet resist the temptation of tasty trout up with Firth and come to play? Will she bring Charlie or Scoopy? Will we have anyone else spotted? Will we have another pup? So many questions; the only way to find out will be to keep up to date with tomorrow’s post, or better yet, join us on the water! Though you may want to bring a jacket; it’s set to be another wet one!
