Seals take refuge from the storms

Well we have certainly had a few wet and windy days here, but look on the bright side – it means the grey seals travel up river to get away from the rough seas.

We have one seal who returns every year to Turnaware – we can recognise him as he has some scarring around one eye. He spends as much time watching Barney fetch sticks from the water as we spend watching him!

This year he seems to have a partner as two grey heads have been bobbing up in the water. It always cheers us up to see them on a wet and windy walk.
