I’m delighted to inform you all that Seal Pup No 2 has survived being a white coat and is now happily swimming confidently and becoming a new addition to the few resident seals here locally. It is always an interesting and exciting time of year for the Atlantic Grey Seals locally as it’s now we will see an influx of more seals coming back to gather with our residents, swelling the numbers substantially. In fact these last two cruises have seen local numbers doubling, with double digit recordings on both recent cruises!
Great Northern, Red and Black Throated Divers are also building in numbers once again, as the winter takes its grip through Central Russia, Scandinavia and Scotland. More and more of these stunning birds will arrive over winter in our rich and sheltered bays. Offshore Giant Bluefin Tuna are still feeding and many pods of Common Dolphins will be continually moving through Falmouth Bay to also hunt out and feast on all the gathering bait fish shoals. So if you are thinking of joining us it’s most certainly exciting times ahead! However, please do wrap up warm as it’s turning much cooler again now. With Christmas coming, our Gift Vouchers make an exciting and unique gift for all. Valid for the whole of 2018, please phone 01326 316098 to find out more.
