Grey Seals

There are several hotspots around Anglesey where you can watch them as they laze around on the rocks and beaches. The Anglesey Coastal path will bring you into close proximity to where the seals live, one of these spots is at ‘Rocky Coast’ near the Breakwater Quarry Park in Holyhead. They often return to the same spot to give birth each year, the seals generally start to give birth to their pups in September through to December. Pups are born with a white coat, and feed on their mother's milk for about 15 days. After an abrupt weaning, by which time they have moulted their baby coat, they endure a fast lasting one to four weeks. During this time, they get most of their energy from their body fat.
