Orkney Seal Pups

One of my favourite walks/activities at this time of year, is to go and see the Grey Seal pups which are born between September and December. My favourite place to go and watch them, is from the cliff top path at Burwick, South Ronaldsay where you can safely watch the dramas on the beaches below without causing any disturbance to the mums and pups. 2 weeks ago, I counted 35 pups on this walk, and this Sunday just passed, I counted approx 71 pups. There were also a few bulls present waiting for their chance. With a bit of sunshine and a flask of coffee, what better way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday morning. 

There is also the Sanday Sealcam which streams live footage from a seal pupping beach on the island of Sanday, a warning though..... its very addictive!
