The first seal pups of the year have been born on an island in the Forth.
The Isle of May, which is owned by the Scottish Heritage Centre, has already seen a number of grey seal pups moving around on the island’s north shore.
Visitors to the Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick can view the new arrivals via cameras located on the island.
The screens at the visitor centre are the only way the public can see the pups until April next year. Boat trips to the island do not run until then so the pups can grow up in a protected environment.
It is expected the island’s seal colony will grow to around 3000 seals by the time the breeding season ends.
