Grey Seal Pup, Gwbert





I like watching seals and in the autumn seeing the pups is really fantastic. Usually Sarah and I head off to Pembrokeshire but this year for various reasons we missed out. We did however drop in at Gwbert on the of chance and found this chap lying on a bed of seaweed snoozing as the tide went out. Mum was out in the sea keeping an eye on the pup and tere were other adult seals around too. Often on the beaches in Pembrokeshire the females fight and bite to protect thier pups and patch of shingle. This pup was quite happy to pose for us and we must have spent a good hour or more watching. His coat is darkening so it wont be long before he is off on his own adventures.
