Seal Skerry, West coast of Eday
Seal Skerry, West coast of Eday, taken 8 years ago
Seal Skerry is indeed used by several Common seals, Phoca vitulina, though not as many as we've seen in previous years. Seal Skerry also deflects the huge tidal streams that characterise these waters. Note the calmer conditions in Sealskerry Bay behind the reef.
