Two seal sightings

A seal was reported 10 metres off the beach at Hove at about 11:30am on the 9th of April. About 5 people saw the seal, which they were surprised to see. It poked its head out of the water and looked at them for about a minute, then swam off.

Another seal sighting, possibly the same seal, was reported off the same beach on 16th May at 10.00 am. The seal was about 50m from the shore and heading east. These were probably common seals. The observer said that the seal looked like a dog swimming, which also indicates a common seal.

Spotted a seal while kayaking with friends yesterday just off shore at Norman's Bay in East Sussex, amazing site, he just seemed to be checking us out.
