Seals on North Score Holm
Seals on North Score Holm
Linking the scattered skerries from North Score Holm down to Hildasay makes all the crossing required to reach the latter island quite short, with the benefit of visiting lots of places where seals haul out. I already had the camera in my hand when we rounded a rock that had been concealing this pair. They seemed to be a mother and pup, as the one on the right splashed noisily into the water a couple of seconds after this shot was taken, and thrashed about in the shallow water, clearly trying to keep our attention. Meanwhile the left hand one remained calmly lying on its rock, looking a little nonplussed as we paddled quietly past.
