Friday 16th October comments: The world of the Isle of May has changed as the seabirds are long gone, the island has closed to our visitors and the place is being taken over…by Grey Seals. The number of pups being born is rising by the day as most small inlets, beaches and rocky outcrops now have seals.

It’s a great sight to see (although a bit smelly) and the new born over the last few weeks are doing well (the mild weather is helping). In recent days the number of cow seals arriving on the May has increased dramatically and over the next few months we expect somewhere in the region of 2,400 pups to be born.

It’ll be interesting to report on the progress of the colony and as usual, we’ll bring you the trials and tribulations of the Isle of May seals on the blog, so keep reading…
