Friday 21st September comments: It begins. This morning our first Grey Seal pup of the autumn was born on the South Wamses (traditionally the island to have our first pup). Both mother and pup are doing well, as the pictures show and we can now look forward to plenty more...another 1,500 more!! Over the next few months we'll be bringing you the news and views from the seal colonies and everything that goes with it. It's good to have our first, now bring on the rest...

Hi David, Im Paul Kingston from North News and Pictures in Newcastle @paulkingstonnnp @northnews ,I was just wondering if it would be possible to do a story on the great news that the first seal pup has arrived on the Farnes using your cute pictures to illustrate. If possible could you contact me or our office on or 0191 2611642. Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you.

Ah, how gorgeous is that? :). Is it early or is the timing about right?
