While seals can be seen basking at any time of year, seals usually return to the land, firstly to moult. Common seals return August - September time, whilst the grey seals return to the land February - April.

Common seal pups have to be able to swim hours after they are born, as many are born on intertidal mud flats. Because of this their coats are sleek and dark.
