We returned a short while ago from 5 days holiday on the East coast of Scotland at Rosemarkie on the Moray Firth. (It should have been 5 days there and then 5 on the West coast but the campervan broke down and cut the holiday short!)

We saw buzzard and red kite and on two visits to Channonry Point we had great views of the resident group of Bottlenose dolphins chasing and catching fish. The best time was about 2 hours after low water. The dolphins came in to feed and could be seen herding the fish and then suddenly accelerating to catch them. Sometimes they flung the fish into the air with the force of their attack. All very spectacular and often very close to the shore. All these photos were taken from dry land.
