Seal Vocalization in Mingulay

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. is a completely free streaming service of 900+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
