Problem with dissolving buffer

Hi everybody!

Maybe somebody can help me with this problem. I have a point shapefile (nests locations). I've plotted a 300m. buffer around each nest using the Buffer tool of "Geoprocessing". I would need to join those buffers that are in contact. I tried to do it using dissolve but the result is not correct because the new shape file has only a row (all the buffers have been joined at the same time)

Whats the correct way to do that?

I apologize if that's a too much simple question for most of you, I'm an absolute beginner in Gis

Thanks in advance!
