Grey seal, Cuckmere River

I have received a seal sighting from Malin (who has provided seal sightings before). This seal was resting on the riverbank between the Golden Galleon Pub and Cuckmere Haven in the Seven Sisters area on New Year's Day.
Malin first saw the seal at around 1.30 pm when they started walking and the seal was still there around 3.30 pm when they returned.
The seal was a grey seal, identifiable by its lack of a forehead. This may well be the same seal that was reported in the nearby river Ouse on 30th December 2010, as grey seals are rarely sighted in Sussex.
