Flipper Junior is saved!
This is a kayaking story with a happy ending . . .
A postman was out delivering the mail on the Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland when he saw a dolphin trapped among the dense seaweed in Northbay.
He alerted Chris Denehy owner of Clear Water Paddling – a kayaking trip business based on Barra and Chris had no hesitation in getting in his kayak and going to rescue the wee fella along with the assistance of two other kayaking helpers.
The young dolphin had been with two other dolphins before getting stuck and when he finally got free with Chris’s help (and his kayak paddle) they put on a fine display of thanks – all captured in the video by Chris.
