A Saturday afternoon with the grey seals of south Devon

Back in September last year I spent a pleasant afternoon watching grey seals at Peartree Point in south Devon. It was fascinating to observe these creatures in their natural environment, lounging on the rocks and swimming in the water nearby. What I hadn’t expected, though, was that I would spend part of the time watching humans and their reactions to the seals.

I wrote an article about my afternoon with the seals and this has just been published on the Land Lines blog. Click here to read.

Both of the pictures of seals shown here were taken at Brixham Harbour using a zoom lens.

  1. I absolutely love seals and sea lions, and make annual trips up and down our coast to watch the pupping in early spring. It’s a delight to sea and enjoy your little grey seals. I don’t know what it is about that is so appealing, but to me they’re just grand! 🙂


  2. Thanks for your comment Debra. I remember the seals from when I lived in California, there used to be a cafe/bar by the ocean in San Francisco and you could hear the seals below. A very evocative sound..
