Seal in the River Arun

A member of the public (Jason) reported a seal in the Arun River (West Sussex) 1/4mile south of the marina at Ford. It was in the evening around 6.30pm. Jason reported that the seal was swimming on the surface travelling with the outgoing tide. when it saw us, it dived and surfaced around 100yds further down river about a minute later with a fish.

The last time I received a seal sighting in the Arun was back in 2008 when a common seal was seen (and photographed) above Arundel. There is a link below to my earlier blog entry of this sighting
