Lazy Friday afternoon…

Friday afternoon...not a care in the world. Nap time.

It's a hard life being a pup...

...and you to mum, sleep time

Friday 23rd October comments: As the Grey Seal colony increases in size; we now have over 100 pups now, its a hard life being a Grey Seal pup. For the first twenty-one days the pup is completely dependent on its mother for milk (which is rich in fat to allow the pup to grow considerably quickly) but after that its a completely new ball game…

The mother will leave (she will have lost almost half her body weight during the lactation period) so will head off to breed and feed leaving the pup to independence. For an animal which is only 21 days old, it has a lot of growing up to do and quickly…but for the time being, its a Friday afternoon and so nap time. And I don’t blame them as life is good at the moment, but that will all change soon…
