Fat and almost ready to go!

and now the adults have started breeding

Saturday 16th November comments: It's been another hectic period on the islands as the Grey Seal colonies are brimming with life. New pups continue to be born, older pups continue to suckle and some are now independent. Even mating is now occurring as the seal season reaches its peak. It won't be long before we are celebrating another successful season, but until then, we still have a job to do. Today we were on the seal colonies counting and spraying pups and we hope to complete the job tomorrow so I will bring a full update with all the latest counts.
