QUIET PLEASE....

The Grey Seal can curiously claim to be Britain`s largest land mammal as it spends much of its time hauled up on isolated coves around the Cornish coast.  One of the best places to see them is at Mutton Cove, close to Godrevy and if you follow some basic rules you have a good chance of seeing the seal colony there.  The seals like a peaceful life, so it`s best to keep as quiet as possible - and keep dogs quiet too - and not perform any sudden movements, as the seals are very sensitive to any kind of disturbance which will make them quickly scurry away into the sea.

So, keeping quiet and keeping as still as I could, I managed to capture this image of the seal colony enjoying the beach at Mutton Cove........
