Not so Common

When we were on a trip the other day, I was in the middle of my speech about the Grey Seals when Andy (my crewman) tapped me on my shoulder and said there is a common seal over there.
I put down my mic and picked up my bins for a look and there it was, right in the middle of all the grey seals.
Its been a good few years since I last saw a common seal at the Farnes and I’m surprised we don’t see more of them, but this was a pleasant surprise.

You could tell its not used to boats as we were nowhere near it and it was getting really nervous so after a few pictures we left it alone.
