The river mouth attracts a wide variety of wildlife, the biggest draw being the resident Moray Firth dolphins, which have often been seen feeding on the river's salmon. Ospreys can also be seen fishing here during the summer, too late to see one now as they've all headed off to Africa for the winter.
The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society have a centre here, it's popular with tourists and has a pretty good cafe. It was a beautiful day, the sea was lovely and it didn't matter that the dolphins didn't put in an appearance.
This was part of a very large piece of driftwood that the centre salvaged and have turned into a feature in the garden. It is called 'Diving Cetacean'. I can see why.
