Common Seal

I always take a look for the long-staying Seal at the Dog in a Doublet when I pass but haven't seen it for quite a while. Perhaps that is because it has been for a trip up the Nene. This morning it was hauled out on the banks of the non-tidal section of the river about halfway along the north bank road opposite Holly Tree. I once saw a Common Seal right up at Orton Lock so this one could turn up anywhere along the river.
