Grey Seal


Grey Seals are one of our largest wild mammals with bulls measuring up to 3m long and 300kg in weight. Found along the entire coast of Ireland, Grey Seals have traditional pupping beaches which are usually on undisturbed offshore islands or inlets. The pupping season is from mid-Sept into October, with when the young pups can be seen in their white furry coats. Fed on a rich diet of milk, the pups grow rapidly and shed their white coats, replacing it with a grey, waterproof coat for winter. This young Grey Seal was hauled up and chilling on Newcastle beach, Wicklow in January 2016. It wasn’t injured or sick but taking power nap. It swam off strongly after 30 minutes.
