Those Big Eyes…

Hi Everyone, We had a surprise little visitor on the slipway at North Kessock the other day – a lovely young female Common or Harbour seal. She had come up onto the concrete for a rest and was perfectly healthy and after I had a thorough look at her to make sure that she was, in fact okay (many of WDC staff, including myself are trained marine mammal medics) – I took a few pictures for the record and then thanked her and quietly backed off to let her snooze the day away until the next tide tempted her to go back in the water for some dinner.  photo _MG_5886_zps48ee2c79.jpg

Seals have the most amazing huge eyes, ideal for locating prey underwater in murky conditions but they also use their big whiskers to feel for food too.

Best Wishes,
