    Default Seal...

    This is probably just an everyday thing for you, but I saw my first wild seal the other week. It was hunting around Dunbeath Harbour..

    Wonderful critters, are they not?
    Yes, you will see them often around the Caithness coast, but always a joyful sight. This time of year they haul up among the boulders and sing. Get yourself a wetsuit, go for a dip, and they will join you - swimming smoothly alongside and under you; big, intelligent, whiskery faces peering and wondering what kind of clumsy visitor this might be.

    Yes, they are wonderful and they are having their pups just now- always a joy to see and the noise from the beach is haunting.

    Make the most of these beautiful mammals before the local fishermen and salmon farms start shooting them
    Michael Stone is innocent.
    Convicted without any forensic evidence and failed to be picked at any ID parade

    There are no salmon farms in Caithness and it is thankfully rare for there to be reports of a shot seal and when there is one, it makes the local paper. I've been watching/enjoying seeing the seals around where I live for over 30 years now without any such problem.

    Like I said, it makes the paper when it happens.
