The Seal of approval

A cracking day over Longstone

I'm watching...we'll keep clear of Bull seals

Saying hello, Seals galore

Sunday 6th November comments: It was another cracking day on the islands, as the sun was shining and the team were once again back on the seal colonies, counting the latest round of pups. Birding was a bit quieter than yesterday although 15 Snow Buntings are now lingering, whilst the partial summer-plumage Great Northern Diver was seen again. The final day total for seal pups was just under 200, bringing our overall autumn total to an impressive 902. A good day's work by the team and they deserve a beer or two tonight.
