Monitoring grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) pupping sites in Cornwall 2016 (NECR262)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

The overall objective of this study looks at the feasibility of the methods to allow a robust data set from SW England to be included within the SCOS dataset. The aims were to a) estimate pup production, b) estimate land-based pup count of the Cornish coast from volunteer surveyors, and c) establish the relationship between estimates of pups from direct cave visits versus counts of seal pups from high vantage points (cliff tops).
