A FASCINATING STUDY into the resident population of bottlenose dolphins on the Moray Firth has been published in a new book by a veteran wildlife conservation officer.

Charlie Phillips has published a new insight into the Highlands most famous residents having spent many years studying, filming and photographing the Moray Firth Dolphins.

Now his new book, ‘On A Rising Tide’, looks set to be a sure-fire hit with the thousands of residents along the Highland, Moray and Aberdeenshire coastlines that is the home of an estimated 100+ dolphins.

In a video promoting the book, Mr Phillips says he hopes that his work will be enjoyed not only by the thousands of people who regularly spot the dolphins all along the coastline, but will also encourage many more people to the area to see for themselves the “wild, free and wonderful” dolphins.

The book will be officially launched at Waterstone’s in Inverness this evening, when Mr Phillips gives a short talk about the book – which includes over 100 of his own photographs.

People in Moray will also have an opportunity to discuss the new book with the author when he attends the Whale & Dolphin Conservation centre at Spey Bay on Friday, October 30 from 12noon until 2pm.

The book has been published by Elgin-based Ness Publishing – further information and how to order a copy online can be found at
