Seal visit!

Walking along the wharf this morning, a small crowd of people were peering over the edge at something in the water – a seal!

Seal!

A lot of people were initially worried as she appeared to just be floating on her back clinging to a branch. So someone called the Maritime Services and updated us. Apparently it’s a female New Zealand Fur Seal and she has been lazing about the harbour all week, apparently the waters around Walsh Bay have lots of squid they can feed on.

It made for a lovely morning’s entertainment. For more photos and some short videos, head over to my Flickr.
