It was a bright, sharp day out at Donna Nook, where the seals were scattered along the shoreline in their dozens. A day or two earlier, a particularly high tide had disturbed the colony and visitors were discouraged. However, things were back to normal on Saturday and young and old, male and female were on display – some very close indeed. The pups can’t help looking cute, while the old males can’t help looking quite the opposite… Sicut in animalibus, ita in hominibus.
