First day of November, still windy (reached 85mph at the top of Black Craig outside Stromness last night), so here is a reminder of sunny, calm days a few weeks ago. This time of year is seal pupping time for grey seals. They are often hauled out resting, or sun bathing. Generally they pup further round the shore on Graemsay. But in October in fine weather they can be found around the pier at Sandside.
And a couple of short videos :
I accidentally disturbed these seals that were on the pier when I rounded a corner..... they were soon back though.
And calming gentle waves by the pier on the coral sand.....
