Lundy and Farne Islands Seals

25th July 2012
June and July brought opportunities to travel to both the Farne Islands and Lundy Island to dive with and photograph Seals.

The Farne Islands are situated between two and five miles off the Northumberland Coast and the Grey Seal is a notable resident, with between 3000 and 4000 of this rare species on and around the islands.The colonies here are one of the most important in Europe, and this species of seal is the largest surviving carnivore in the British Isles, residing throughout the year.

Lundy Island lies off the coast of North Devon where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bristol Channel and is home to a breeding colony of around 60 Grey Seals. In the summer months there are around double this number.
