More images have emerged of the dolphins saved after becoming stranded on the sands of an Angus military base.
Animal rescuers were called to the Barry Buddon Training Area after a baby dolphin and its mother were found some distance apart at the site on Thursday at about 8am.
After a long rescue operation the mammals were successfully conveyed back to the water.
The RNLI Broughty Ferry Lifeboat was launched at 11.30am to assist British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) and the military.
The RNLI released the pictures along with a statement on its Facebook page.
It said: “Broughty Ferry ILB was launched to reports of a dolphin that had beached in the area of Barry Buddon.
“Aberdeen Coastguard requested the ILB provide safety cover for British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) who were attempting to refloat an adult dolphin that had been washed ashore.
“A short time later whilst on scene a dolphin calf was also discovered on the beach. The calf was placed within the inshore lifeboat and taken to deeper water to aid its survival and was successfully released by the lifeboat crew.
“An MOD all-terrain vehicle that had been used in the rescuing of the dolphins to transport teams, equipment and the calf became stuck in the incoming tide.
“Broughty Ferry ILB were tasked by Aberdeen Coastguard to rescue the driver who had escaped the water by climbing onto the roof of the vehicle. The driver had no injuries.
“After the successful release of both adult and calf all teams were stood down. Broughty Ferry ILB returned to station, refuelled and made ready for service.”
BDMLR’s national coordinator Julia Cable said: “An adult female dolphin was reported live stranded at about 8am this morning. It was right up at the high-up end of the beach.
“We tried to re-float the adult dolphin once. That wasn’t successful.
“We had a team of trained marine mammal medics.
“They stabilised its breathing and got its stress levels down.
“Shortly afterwards a dolphin calf was found stranded, which was likely the calf of the female dolphin.
“We re-floated it close to where the female was eventually successfully re-floated.
“We’ve got people monitoring the beach to make sure they don’t come back.”
The UK Coastguard were also on the scene.
The military are said to have used a four-wheel drive vehicle to help bring the animals closer to the shore.
