Once more a seal pup has been seen visiting Blockhouse Bay. It was making itself at home in the doorway to the Boat Club for a while.
This is a common sight in winter as the seal mothers leave their pups ashore while fishing. It is also part of weaning before they give birth again.
DOC advise just to leave seal pups alone unless they are injured. They ask people to keep their distance and to keep dogs under control.
