Common Seal (Selkie)

Observed: 3rd August 2011 By: vetandteachervetandteacher’s reputation in Mammalsvetandteacher’s reputation in Mammals
P8033419 1

The Shetland Tourist Office issues a seal to each visitor. They then pop up whenever and wherever you are walking along the coast. Our one came to see us off at the ferry in Lerwick, which was nice.
I have posted the second picture separately - see below.

Different seals

The first seal is a common seal but the second is a grey seal - could you post the second one as a separate observation?

Thanks for the ID

I will post it separately. I will leave the picture here so that your ID makes sense to people visiting the page.
