This Grey seal pup Halichoerus grypus, reminded me of the legendary masked manSmile

Taken this weekend at Donna Nook, in the excellent company of Sylvia (Teocali), Richard (Mossy Oak) & Ron (Maiwand).
We also met Janet (grinning soul), who's knowledge of the seals knew no boundsWink

We spent all our time within the viewing area - never saw anyone out on the sandbanks, but to be honest, it appeared if there was a swath of water preventing access - perhaps the surge tides have cut a deeper trough in them

Not long arrived home, after a very hectic evening in the Premier Inn hostelryTongue

Thanks to you all for a great weekend, both daytime & night time SmileWink

Off to the woods to check the feeders and then it is Under 16's football
