Good photos for identification purposes. Clearly show the concave, straight-topped muzzle of a grey seal.

Concave or convex?!

I thought it was convex for a grey seal?
Nice to see you back on iSpot Graham - where have you been?!

Well spotted Gill, I wondered if anyone would notice my deliberate mistake! Do you think I'll get away with it?

I was ill over much of November-February and then I've been snowed under organising a three day BioBlitz in Scarborough. Anyone interested, it's 2, 3 & 4 June 2011 in Scarborough.

I'm back now and making mistakes already!
