The Seal Pups of Bardsey Island 1

Bardsey Island
There is an island off the north coast of Wales and at this time of year (Autumn) grey seals haul out there to give birth to and suckle their pups, which are born with coats of purest white. Here are just a few images.

And another that is starting to moult.
