This week’s photo challenge from the daily post is about a place which draws us back to take photos. I am posting two snaps, one I have shared previously and a rather poor quality, but very exciting recent photo taken nearby.
The waves fascinate me. There are often sea birds. Sometimes there is human activity – swimmers, hang gliders, canoeists and others.
The smudge between the unbroken wave and the shore is a seal. Grey seals are not unknown in this area, but hubby and I had not seen one in the Irish Sea off Cumbria. . We have seen them in other areas of the British coast.
I checked with Cumbria Wildlife Trust on Twitter that it was not unusual for a seal to be alone. They replied that they are seen alone or in groups as at South Walney, a place we have not yet visited.
