This grey seal was spotted and photographed in the Trent Vale two weeks ago by Dr Robin Brace. The seal was swimming in the River Trent close to Collingham and the Notts Wildlife Trust Besthorpe Nature Reserve.

Seals following tidal rivers are not uncommon Britian. There have been three sightings of grey seals so far this year in the Collingham and Besthorpe area. If you are lucky enough to spot any seals then we'd love to hear from you!
