Thursday 4th October comments: The Isle of May is now slowly and surely changing. The number of Grey Seals is increasing daily around the island and the number of pups has increased…to four!
We’ve now got four pups scattered across the island including the first on Pilgrims Haven (the small sheltered beach on the west side). All four are doing well and we’ll soon be welcoming many more. Over 2,500 pups will be born on the island over the forthcoming months and the transformation is interesting to watch. Areas once dominated by seabirds are completely taken over by our large blubbery friends.
As always we’ll be keeping you posted and we’ll take some ‘before and after’ photos of the colonies as they grow in size. However until then we are glad to report a full bill of health for the Seal pups on the Isle of May.
