Early molt

Adult females and juvenile seals are arriving on the beach already. It seems early for molting, but checking previous years of this blog, perhaps not. Quite a few seals are on the beach, several already actively molting.
High tide came far up the beach. The returning seals have last year's brown coats, soon to be replaced by pearly gray.
