Record number of Grey Seals - Little Orme

Atlantic Grey Seals are a regular sight along the Conwy coast, usually bobbing up and down just offshore and occasionally coming onto land in one's or two's. However, there has been an increasing group of these fabulous animals in Angel Bay, Little Orme over the past few weeks which peaked today at an amazing 23 individuals. Each one is unique in colour and size and includes a number of youngsters. There was a mini twitch going on this afternoon, with all ages and types marvelling at the sight.

Birds present included 20+ Red throated Divers offshore as well as small numbers of Common Scoter, Auks, Kittiwakes and Fulmars.
