The officially peculiar seal of Topcliffe

A visit to some friends yesterday turned out in unexpected fashion.  Despite being about 72 miles upriver from the Humber Estuary, there has been a Common Seal there for the last few weeks and it has featured on news reports across the world.  The afternoon was spent watching the sea life rescue services attempt to catch it and return it to the sea.  There is, or at least was, a lot of fish in this bit of river, so the seal was having none of it and remains at large.
