Births gather momentum

Plenty of pups have been born on the beach, with more to come.

Mothers and pups continue to experience some confusion. One visitor said she'd like to make little hats for the pups, so their mothers would recognize them. She was very concerned, but as we stood and watched for half an hour, one of the mothers woke up and took an interest in her pup. By that time, another mother had assumed some protective feelings for the neglected little one, but after some fussing, they settled down, one to one.

After days of rain, today was sunny and pleasant. This little fellow appears to be enjoying the respite from being drenched.
