Another shot from my trip to Donna Nook on the East Coast of England over the winter.
Grey seal pups put on weight very quickly, feeding on their mother’s (called cows) fat-rich milk. Over just eighteen days they triple their weight (the suckling period). Cows stay with their pups during this period and do not feed, so they lose about 10lb in weight each day.
