Scotland | Protected seal haul-out area subject to harassment by drone flyers, others: police

A man was captured on camera using an aerial drone to film the colony of 1,000 grey seals who reside on the Ythan estuary at Forvie, whilst others walked on the beach next to the animals.


Since May 2017, the site has been designated a protected haul-out zone for the sea mammal and it is an offence to harass the seals – but to date no one has been charged with harassment.
