Today was a lovely autumn day and definitely one on which to check up on our seals. There had already been some pictures in various Facebook pages of the new arrivals, so William and I headed off for the South Parish to the sealy spots we had found in previous years. And bingo, they were there!
These were on the beach at one of my favourite beauty spots on the island. There was a fine view from the clifftop:
It was incredibly bright and everything sparkled. Several dads seemed to be guarding the baby beach from the sea:
And there was plenty to guard. Why do the seals choose to lie in mushy seaweed when there are nice clean stones right nearby?
These seals were in the sort of sunny spot I might have chosen for myself (but it was another beach and it didn't have any seaweed):
They also had some cormorants to watch over them
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
