Seal pups!

So, on a windy wet day I took the ferry over to Papa Stour with a friend and colleague to check on the stiles, gates and a people counter and see if there were many of the seasons white cute fluffy things about...

And there were!


Lots...


Hungry ones too...


Grey seal pups are very cute.


 And their Mum's aren't bad either. 


The Dad's are a bit ugly though! Just to be clear I was a good distance from them and these are cropped photos taken with a telephoto lens; didn't want to cause upset and my friend was counting them for records.


Sadly one wasn't so lucky. A crow was feeding on the poor thing.


I may get up to Uyea to see them there at the weekend if the weather's fine...
