I had written in depth about the Shackleton Crash it reminds you of difficult times. It was good to go out and walk round the Hopeman Golf Course yesterday it was a stunning day.

It clears the head.

The birds were singing especially the yellow hammers their chorus was incredible. They seem to love the golf course and the bright yellow Gorse and there chatter is full on.

They are a huge attraction to me and many others what a stunning bird and sound they make .

Yellowhammer (Emberiza citrinella) Yellowhammers are resident all year round, except in north and northwest parts of Scotland (Highlands of Scotland and certain lowland areas i.e. Inner Hebrides and Orkneys), where they are summer visitors only.

it was great to be out and though not playing just to be out in the fresh air was superb. I had not seen the local

Moray Dolphins this year and just of the 15 th green I saw the tell tale splash in the sea.

The Dolphins were close to the shore and in full view heading along the coast. It was incredible and I watched them for a while.

Is there anything better to see ? We all watched no matter how often we see them it was so exciting to see.

I never tire of seeing them, they bring such a warming to your heart.

There is the Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay well worth a visit.

Welcome to the Scottish Dolphin Centre


Visit the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre for the chance to see the amazing bottlenose dolphins of the Moray Firth. Enjoy beautiful walks along the tumultuous River Spey, spot a seal or osprey, and discover Spey Bay’s fishing heritage during a tour of the historic Icehouse. Entry to the centre is FREE.

Go and visit and if you see the Dolphins there are not many things that are better.

Check up on Friday for my eyes great to be out though!
