The Scottish Seabird Centre, in North Berwick, indicates that in the Bass Rock area of the Firth of Forth a family of bottlenose dolphins (above) has discovered a warm-water spot. They have probably come from the Moray Firth area, to the north, where around 130 of them have been counted. Perhaps, a mother has brought her calves to 'holiday' in these waters closer to the capital, while the dolphin below encouraged her young to show a spirited response while remaining nearer Inverness and points east.
