Meet Sparky our Dolphin
We are so,so fortunate to have a friendly dolphin that wants to interact with us on our walks.
No it is not Flipper, but a playful, cheeky, sprightly youngster we have named Sparky.
Each day these lovely creatures work together to herd fish into the canal where they can scoop them up.
We sit and watch them speed up and down in front of us, playing with their food, smashing their tails against the water, and stopping by to say hi and check us out.
Today Sparky swam up with a fish hanging out of his mouth to show us what he had caught.
Our friend Scruffy the pelican also benefits from this feeding frenzy...he scoops us a free load of fish from the side of the canal as well.
You can't buy this kind of experience!
We are loving it.
