Love on the rocks!

THIS cute seal chilling out on the rocks at St Bees beach on Saturday afternoon was spotted and snapped by one of our readers, Andrew Graham.

Just popping in to say hello: A common seal rests up on St Bees beach

And it seems a lot of people in the area saw it and contacted the British Divers Marine Life Rescue to check it was okay.

Julia Cable, from the organisation which is dedicated to the rescue and wellbeing of marine animals in distress around the UK, identified it as a young common seal probably born last summer.

“We had quite a few calls about it but it looks nice and fat and healthy,” she said. “The common seals are a lot more laid back than the grey seals. They rest out of the water.”

She said they were going to send someone out to check on the seal the following day, however it was quite safe and had gone back in the water.

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue, celebrating its 25th anniversary, can be contacted on 01825 765546.
