31st of December: Tailing off

Seal pup births are tailing off. As we reach the end of the year, the birth rate has fallen to less than one a day.

There have been a total of 2,697 Grey Seal pups born between 18th October and 31st December 2017. There may be a very small number of pups born in January 2018, but this unlikely to be many more than just a couple.

The National Trust would like to wish all readers of the blog a very happy new year.

UPDATE: 5th of January pup count takes total up by 2 to 2,699
