Sue Sayer

Sue Sayer has lived in Corn­wall since 1991. She has spent thou­sands of hours remotely observing grey seals in the wild, which has given her an unpar­alleled insight into the beha­viour of these curi­ous and play­ful mar­ine creatures. Able to recog­nize indi­vidual seals by sight, their appear­ance on a Cornish beach after a long absence is like the return of an old friend. In 2004, Sue set up Corn­wall Seal Group, which has a healthy, act­ive mem­ber­ship that meets once a month. In 2008, Sue gave up her day job to study seals full time, and is now self-​​employed, try­ing to earn a mod­est liv­ing by shar­ing her know­ledge of seals with oth­ers. Sue is the author of Seal Secrets: Corn­wall and the Isles of Scilly, pub­lished in our Pocket Corn­wall series.
