Seals in the Mersey

Seals have been swimming up the mersey for 100’s of years to take advantage of a rich supply of fish. Warrington museum has the stuffed remains of a seal that was shot in the Locks in 1908. Read about that here.

We still see a few every few years and with the aid of camera phones we are now getting photos and videos of these delightful animals. Here are a few which have been shared with the New Cut Heritage and Ecology Trail Group.
