At high tide.
Stayed in the same spot, between the PDC and the Thames Path wall for quite some time, mostly submerged. But I don't think "she" caught any fish'

NOTE - we've always called it Poppy - don't remember why and have no idea if it's male or female, or even if this is the same seal.
Adding another shot - wondering if the white spot on the head is just the sun's reflection.
ADDED a picture of the ship for Jo - and checking https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:0.000/centery:51.500/zoom:13 during a normal day one may see the volume of traffic passing along the river.
