A ROSS-SHIRE lifeboat crew yesterday responded to their second shout within 24 hours.
The RNLI Kessock launch was in response to "a call with good intent" for a paddle boarder in potential difficulty passing Chanonry Point.
The team conducted a search of the area to the north-east of Chanonry, around Riff Bank in good conditions.
Working in conjunction with local Coastguard teams and Rescue 151, possible sightings from shore were investigated.
The lifeboat returned to station for a crew change at 10pm and was stood down by the Coastguard at 10.45pm.
