Probable grey Seal at Hove
Just received an e-mail from SWT Wildcall about a seal off Hove Beach. The attached pic was from a phone and relatively poor quality. My best guess is it could be a grey seal (hard to see from position and quality- if nostrils were visible it would be easier to ID).The size and position of the eyes also suggest a grey – but I may be wrong. The picture is very low quality (but as always, better than no picture.
The seal was spotted off Hove seafront at about 7.30 am this morning, by the groyne near Embassy Court/ King Alfred. The observer reported the seal appeared healthy.Unfortunately I was unable to get to the beach in time to take a look.
