while i was paddling up the west side of little cumbrae i got the feeling i was being followed! I could hear the sound of an inquisative seal following me. he came right up to me several times to check me out. i let myself drift along as he got more bold. i took this picture over my shoulder and caught him out.


  1. Hi Alan,
    They never get boring do they? Try paddling backwards away from a seal and they come really close - seems that they don't mind which way your head's pointing as long as you're heading away from them!
    all the best


  2. cheers ian

    i will give that a try next time. i always feel very lucky to see wildlife when im out for a paddle.
