Adelina

On December 6th 2010, Adelina was born at the “Nordstrand Ost” at the “Düne”. She was tagged with the flipper-tag with the number 558 into her right hind flipper. But already in this young age, her fur pattern was quite distinguishable, and she could be spotted and indetified from far away easily. The colour of the fur seemed almost bluish in the sun. Still, her shiny fur and the spots makes it easy to spot an re-identify her.

Victoria

Victoria was born at the “Düne” on November 11th 2010. She was marked with a flipper-tag with the number 497 into her right hind flipper.
On May 5th2011 she was spotted at the “Düne”, being all tangled up in an fishing net. It was wound tightly around her neck, with no chances of being able to release herself. The “Seehundjäger” was called and acted quickly. He was able to free her. Now, only the big scar around her neck reminds of that life-threatening situation.
In winter 2006 she had her first pup at the “Düne”.

Nora

Nora was born at the “Düne” in 2005. She got a green flipper-tag in her left hind flipper wit the number 156. But now, her fur pattern is the best way to identify her, since the number on the tag has been wased off. In winter, the “Aade” is, where she can be found.

Carmen

Carmen’s first sighting was on December 6th  2008. It was not sure whether or not she had a pup at that time, or if she was only there to assess the breeding situation. It seems though, she liked it, since until now she at least had three pups at the “Düne”

Irma

Irma already had five pups at the Düne. The first three, she raised at the “Nordstrand West” directly at the entrance. But since winter 2012/13 she chose the “Südstrand”, supposedly because this spot is much more calm and less frequented by tourists passing by. Her fur is quite dark and at a first glimpse, she could be mistaken as a male. But her very petite facial features mark her as a female.

Dani

Dani herself was born in 2006 at the Düne. She could be marked with a flipper-tag with the number 186 into the left hind flipper. The number on the tag however is already unreadable. But her fur pattern is perfect to be recognized and re-identified via photo-ID.
Dani at least had one pup at the Düne.

Linda

Linda was born in 2007 at the Isle Amrum! This could be determined by the number of her green flipper-tag with the number 203, which she got shortly after her birth. Like so many other seals, it seems she thinks of the Düne as the perfect place to give birth. She at least had two pups at Helgoland.
