A great day at Birds Rock yesterday with plenty of Atlantic grey seal sightings during the two hour survey conducted. Three seals were observed in the water, bottling, scanning and diving. Another spent some time attempting to haul out onto the rocks despite the large waves washing over them. Excitingly, our Sea Seal volunteer was able to identify three of the four of the seals recorded as individuals spotted at Birds Rock earlier this year! Other sightings included kestrels, gannets and a small toad.
