Meant to say, name means hook-nosed sea pig!

Grey seals

An excellent photo of a beach haul out. There are a mixture of ages and sexes here, including what looks like a newly moulted pup, the small pale one in the first photo.

Location

Great photos! Seals at this site are very vulnerable to disturbance which is already at high levels and getting higher. A more general reference to the location would be great...e.g St Ives Bay or north cornish coast. The light seal in the photo is a juvenile - probably between 1 or 2 years old.
