Grey Seal casualties

Post by BrianR » 19 Nov 2016, 21:43

There have been unusual numbers of Grey Seals washed up on Baleshare beach in the last couple of weeks. I counted ten yesterday just on the north part from the car park. A sad image of one is attached. Has anyone else noticed this on other beaches.

I found three ( 2 pups and an adult) here on the beach recently and there have been others who have found seals in the dunes. Seems like they are having a bad time of it
