Grey seal pups

I was out west today doing some path works and came across a few cute grey seal pups down below in a geo...




And a mummy too...


When I passed there a number of ravens flew up. I soon saw the reason for the gathering. A less than cute and fluffy pup was their main course for the day. A bit sad but everyone's got to eat.


 At another location there was another large number of ravens hanging about, but this time there was a happier ending. A lovely coloured shetland sheep had it's head stuck in some rylock fencing and if it wasn't for us would be feeding those ravens too. With a bit of pushing from one end and pulling from the other we managed to free the sheep and watched it as it wobbled it's way towards a group of sheep, occasionally stopping for a feed. 

Good deed for the day done, but we got no thanks from the sheep!

    1. These seemed particularly blobby! Much cuter when they're small
