Lately I have found myself busier at work, which has resulted in spending less time behind the camera and writing blog updates. When I have been able to spend behind the camera, I’ve not quite managed to find the time to sort out any photos that I have taken.
Last month we finally managed to travel North of the border to Scotland to visit family and friends for the first time since the COVID pandemic. As well as catching up with family and friends we always try to go out and explore some of the natural beauty of the North-East of Scotland and this time was no exception.
One of our favourite places in Aberdeenshire to visit has always been Newburgh Beach (aka Seals Beach). We usually stroll along the beach and watch on the seals on the other side of the bay and in the sea. But on this particular occasion we were lucky enough to have a seal venture onto the same side of the beach as us, only feet away from where we were walking, and happily posed for us as we snapped away. It was one of those situations where you wanted to get closer, but also wanted to keep your distance as to not spook the seal. Although I don’t think he would have cared much even if we had we sat right next to him. He seemed quite relaxed just lazing on the sand almost oblivious to people strolling along the beach. I’m pretty sure we were all more interested in him than he was in us.
One thought on “Seal Beach”
thanks for your seal pictures. We have grey seals and common (harbour) seals here as well at the Blakeney Point. You might have seen Hanne-Dina’s pictures in The Guardian, The Times etc. of our seals. Here you can see some pictures of Hanne-Dina https://fabfourblog.com/?s=seals
At the Blakeney Point (North Norfolk coast) we have the biggest colony of grey seals in the UK. The grey seals are around from Nov.-Jan. at the Blakeney Point and the common seals are all the year around here.
Great that we found your blog. We love Scotland.
All the best and thanks for sharing
