Seals at North Score Holm
Seals at North Score Holm
As we paddled quietly past, linking skerries by short crossings as an easy way to reach Hildasay, we had surprised this pair of seals hauled out on North Score Holm. The one which has just splashed noisily into the water seems likely to be the mother of the pup which remained on the rock, looking a little nonplussed throughout the brief encounter. Seals often follow sea kayakers, their curiosity overcoming their fear, but this one thrashed about in the shallow water, apparently trying to distract us away from her pup.
