Throughout the Hebrides, nearly every island has a special place where, each year, Grey Seals haul out to give birth in the relative safety of a protective sandy cove or cave. Here they can give birth and suckle their pups protected from the wildness of the Atlantic ocean.
The plaintive calls of the pups can be heard for a few weeks while they grow quickly from their mothers' milk. The pups are very vulnerable in these early weeks as they cannot swim and are totally dependant on their mothers to guard them. Over the next few months they learn to swim under the mothers guidance and then they are off, on their own, into the Atlantic until it is their turn to breed.
