See Dolphins, seals and ospreys from Covesea Lighthouse Lossiemouth

Wildlife in the Moray Firth

There is an abundance or marine mammals, animals and birds in and around the Moray Firth and the Covesea Lighthouse is perfect for spotting a variety of the local wildlife.

The Moray Firth is home to around 130 bottlenose dolphins. This dolphin group is special, as it is the only known resident population of bottlenose dolphins in the North Sea. From land, groups of these bottlenose dolphins can be seen leaping close to shore

Other regular sightings include seals, otters, gannets,herons,kestrels and ospreys to name but a few.

Nearby is the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre based at the mouth of the world famous River Spey and is well worth a visit.
