Apologies for the really rubbish title…well, that’s me back to work after a two week break. We didn’t go anywhere exotic but did manage to get up North for a couple of days to see how the Atlantic Grey seals are doing giving birth to their fluffy white pups. We managed to see some fairly close up without disturbing them, but where the bigger colony was situated, unfortunately, was impossible to get to due to a rock-fall.
Gorgeous aren’t they? After three weeks or so this young pup will be out at sea finding food for itself after a month or so of being pumped full of Mums thick, rich milk. Farewell and good luck little guy – hope to see you as a cheeky juvenile next year. I haven’t spotted many dolphins since coming back – three away over in the distance near the Hillockhead coast a few days ago but nothing since.
