A lovely spell by the Ythan

    I went up to Newburgh to do a bit of seal-watching. They are, of course, utter cunts who know exactly when you're pointing a camera at them. :D But it was amusing to see the seals shooed off the beach by the armada of ducks.

    It was a lovely afternoon. I was there for low tide. There were people swimming and playing in the water: they got out when the tide turned!

    I was up there just last week for work. On a truly awful shitty day that turned nice as soon as I left the place! :mad:

    Best time I've found to go there is a low tide early in the morning - All sorts of interesting wildlife abounds and you can get pretty close to the seals.

    This wasn't early but it was the last time I was down there on a good day with a camera.

    Gorgeous pics. That seal looks a little worried, though!

    Its probably thinking "Its one of the guys with the strange machines. Nooooooo....!" :D

    The seals will often respond to a whistle, like dogs and swim much closer. I would be wary of approaching a hauled-out one, especially with young nearby though. They can get quite aggressive.

    What did I say earlier!

    Shame on the dog but this is the seal's natural home.
