Seal study – Part I

I was fortunate to get quite close to an Atlantic grey seal and Common seal colony with my telephoto lens. Bulls live for 25 years, but cows live up to 35 years. It is important to keep your distance because they can move fast and bite.

Seals feed on a variety of fish and shellfish. The smell hangs in the air.

It is thought that seals bask in the sun to remove parasites from their skin.

A seal breeding area is called a rookery.
