Fight club; bulls fighting already (Robert Hunt)

Monday 27th October comments: We are now into the thick of things as the number of Grey Seal pups increases on a daily basis. Our last visit to the nurseries produced 124 pups and if weather allows, we’ll be back in for more counting in the next day or two.

As for the pups themselves, all appear fine as those youngsters born in recent weeks are being looked after by attentive mothers. It's not just the mothers, but Bull seals have arrived (and have started fighting...boys will be boys) whilst more and more cow seals arrive to give birth.

It’s never dull in a Farne Islands Seal colony and I’ll bring you more news and pictures in the next few days.
