In order to organise a seal survey the tide times must be checked to ensure a low tide for an hour either side of our visit.
For the most recent seal survey we needed to be arriving at South Walney for 8am to start our survey at 8:30am. It would take us roughly an hour from Plumgarths (HQ), and it would take me half an hour to get to Plumgarths.
Needless to say it was an early start for me, and getting up at 5am isn’t normally my idea of fun. On this occasion though, I leapt out of bed with excitement!
