Pups survive the storms: latest seal count as 2018-19 season draws to a close …..

Seal count 10th January 2019

Will these be the last pups of 2018-19 season?  

Seal counters were out today, after the rough seas and high tides at the start of the week. As expected, they found a big change in seal numbers from last week.

270 adult seals and 182 pups were counted on the dunes and beaches, including six pups born since last count.

The total number of births is now 2,068
