Autumn is the time to come and see the Pembrokeshire seal pups!

Hi everyone, following a long, enjoyable and sunny summer September is nearly upon us. Traditionally the fairest month here in West Wales mis Medi (Welsh for Sept) is a good time for seeing seals in some of the remote coves on the Pembrokeshire coast path. It is pupping season, so the seals come ashore to give birth and stay close to land during their pups first weeks.Pembrokeshire Seal PupThe Guardian have produced some very useful information about Pembrokeshire (their Holiday Guide to Pembrokeshire) and the following link describes the seals at Cemaes Head and Traeth Godi’r Cochone, close to Poppit Sands, Cardigan: http://www.theguardian.com/travel/gallery/2012/jul/10/top-10-wildlife-pembrokeshire-wales-pictures#/?picture=392682092&index=3

Other options are a day trip to Skomer Island, in the southern part of the National Park, usually undertaken by boarding the Dale Princess. Alternatively there are a number of operators running trips to, or around, Ramsay Island, from St Justinian lifeboat station near St David’s.
