Weddell Seals, Rothera


The wedds are are an ever-present and ever-cute presence around the point and on icebergs (though they are more vulnerable to the Orcas on the latter). The Orcas have made sporadic appearances but no photos yet.

This was a rather sad sight, an adult (presumably the mum) was swimming round the dead pup (in the shadows top left) nudging it with its nose and flippers, trying to wake it up.
