Peaking Pups

Bull seals moving in...would you mess?

Even the cow seals can be feisty!


Whilst the pups just sleep regardless

Saturday 8th November comments: It's been an interesting few days as a northerly, then southerly storm lashed the Farne Islands bringing mountainous seas and we were not going anywhere. However with a high pressure weather system dominating the weekend, we'll be out on the Seal colonies once again to see how many pups have been born since we last visited and what affects the storm has had on those present. 

It'll be interesting to see how the pups have coped especially on the low lying shingle beaches and I suspect they'll be some casualties... However it won't all be bad news but we'll not know until Sunday evening when the count details are sorted. Fingers crossed for some positive news...
