Common Seal

Dropped in to Scarborough Harbour for a check of any possible white winged gulls in the area and to my surprise I found this little Common Seal pup taking a rest on the slipway. At first I thought the seal didn't look well, its eyes constantly closed, not really gaining its balance on the slipway. I was just about to give the Scarborough Sea Life Centre a call for them to send out a member of staff when the little chap came to life and swam off in to the distance. We do get the occasional seal in the harbour but not usually out of the water, they are magnificent creatures.
