26th of January: Sweet Sixteen

We are very happy to report that Grey Seal pup number 2,700 of the winter is doing well. It was born on 10th January, meaning it is now 16 days old; just 3-5 days away from being weaned.

Adorable footage of the pup - taken on the day it was born - appeared in this recent BBC online video.

Despite being the last cow to pup on Blakeney Point, the mother has stayed with her pup, which looks healthy.

We were also pleased to notice, today, that the cow is accompanied by a bull, which means she should be able to mate ready for next season. A happy end to a brilliant breeding season!
