A minor diversion...Grey Seals are a regular visitor to our shores at this time of year...but rarely do they come within zoom lens range. Our Village has a man-made `lagoon' (wish it were a South Sea one!!) which is filled/emptied by the movement of the tides. At High Tide the water climbs an impressive 12-15 feet washing over the top of the wall. It brings with it various types of fish, but rarely a seal. This fella reckoned he coud get an easy lunch and found himself a tasty morsel.

I rushed down to the beach and fired off some shots GrinGrin

Vs 1 & 2 are heavily cropped...not the best in terms of quality, but....
