First seal sighting of the year

Seal sighting reported by Sue B.
My husband and I have just returned from a walk along Worthing front and are thrilled to report that we have seen a seal offshore. It was swimming and coming to the surface about 20/30 meters offshore between Worthing Pier and the Lido. A flock of sea gulls were flying above its head and it 'looked quite young as only 30 inches long and jet black.
Not sure how common this sighting in this area but am keen to find out more about where to view wildlife offshore. Have only been living in the area 6 months.
Very exciting but sorry couldn't get a photo.
