Article and photo courtesy of the Daily Echo:

Seal spotted at 7 pm on Friday 8th July sunning itself at Town Quay.

The happy animal jumped up onto rocks near Fantinis at Town Quay at about 7pm last night.

Photographer and marine ecologist Andy Pearson snapped the seal as it lazed on the shore.

He said: “I see common seals relatively often at sea in Southampton Water and the Solent and have also seen a spotted a few grey seals in the area over the years but it is incredibly rare to see a grey seal hauled out in Southampton.
