Seal Vocalization in Mingulay

Recordist: David de la Haye
Mingulay, Outer Hebrides, Scotland


An underwater recording that captures some of the wide vocal repertoire of seals. It was recorded whilst at anchor off the sheltered east coast of Mingulay, one of the most southerly islands of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. This location is uninhabited by humans, but was home to a large grey seal population late September during their breeding season. It was made during an expedition trip with the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust.
