Can you see seals?

So one fine day in January I decided it would be a great idea to go for a walk along the Godrevy coastpath to see the seals. On this occasion, there was torrential rain…

I parked at the Fishing Cove carpark (SW599 427) just past the Hell’s Mouth cafe.

During wet weather the path gets very muddy, especially along the fields.

I met a little furry friend on my travels.

During low tide, over 100 seals have been seen resting on this beach and females will come and have their pups here as well.

Numbers of seal start increasing around the Autumn. The day I went the tide was in quite a way and the sea really rough, so not many of them were loitering.
