Despite the strong wind and large waves our SeaSeal volunteer spotted three Atlantic grey seals at Birds Rock yesterday!! A female was observed during the first half of the survey, scanning and diving in the same spot. The other two individuals were sighted in the water, swimming through the survey area. A pair of choughs was also seen flying around the cliffs!
