Going back to a couple of weekends ago, while on my birthday wildlife weekend, I spent an afternoon at a seal colony. Descending the steep cliff path down towards the colony, we could see a number of seals out on the rocks.
But this one is uncropped at 600mm equivalent. I felt a bit like one of the wildebeest waiting to cross the river with crocodiles looking up at me. Thankfully seals are not dangerous, unless you do something very stupid!
Between the torrential rain, wet seaweed covered rocks and the tide rising when I didn’t want to move and spook a seal, I was soaking wet from my ankles up to my chest, despite wearing a waterproof coat! But it was worth it!
A good day, with thanks to Stuart, Gill and Dave for their company too!
