I’ve got an eye on you

As we passed Staple Island the other day we noticed a lone seal basking on the rocks. At first we did not take any notice as seals enjoy a bit of sunshine, but then someone asked if we get Grey or Common Seals at the Farne Islands. Mostly we get Grey Seals but only a few Common Seals, and as one of the lads glanced at the seal he noticed it was a Common Seal.

Well would you credit it, a Common Seal. It’s been a while since we have seen one and to be honest we don’t really pay to much attention to them as we see them day in and day out, but to see a Common was a really nice surprise.
