Grey seal

Around 3.00 - 3.30pm today, just after high tide, a grey seal was observed off the beach at Aldwick. It was only a few feet off shore and a clear sightings of the head which was dark grey, quite large and stocky and the top of the heard down to the nose was straight so definitely a grey seal.

It stayed at the surface a few feet from the waters edge, facing towards the shore and looking both above and below the surface and would occasionally submerge and then come back up. It would remain in one place for around a minute or 2 before submerging and then appearing about 50m further west, possibly heading back towards Pagham Harbour as the tide went out or the light faded
