Grey Seal pup at Ardnave

Came across Mum and pup in a gully near Ardnave Point.  There were good numbers of grey seals all around the peninsular - both in and out of the water....  The Scientific name for Grey seal is Halichoerus grypus, meaning "hooked-nosed sea pig".  Which is a bit unfair in my view....
