Saw Winter Watch last night and the seals (youngsters) have a tough time the males fight ferociously to expect you may have watched the programme - love your upload today Sylvia so natural and beautiful

Great capture Sylvia. This must be about as near as near as that pup will get to a family life as his Mother will soon be turning her back on him and heading out to sea.
