Common seals in seaweed

 With all the recent storms it has been no surprise that a tremendous amount of seaweed has been thrown up on the beach and beyond

Down at Sandsaye it was around 4 or 5 times normal and thrown high up from the ebbtide.
I was photographing waders when i noticed a mother and pup common seal high up on a pile of seaweed

Neither looked concerned as i approached slowly and at a distance. They turned a few times but stayed put

Common seal pup are born around June and this looked small

Sandsaye is always a good place for both Common and Grey seals
