These are Grey Seals basking it up on the rocks around the Farne Islands in the UK. At this point, you may be asking 'has he not run out of pictures from that trip yet?' and the answer is a resounding 'No, I have not!'
If you look closely you can see one of the seals in these pictures has a huge nose - thats the male. The females are a little less nasal!
I may have to keep mining the archives while I am strapped to my desk! SM
