A message from Sue Sayer of the Cornish Seal Group:
Yes indeed you are right – it most certainly is a common seal!
Excellent news and sighting.
We have had sightings of a common seal in the Fowey up as far as above Golant and Penpol but not this far up as you say.
The last report I had was 25/01/15 so it is good to see the seal is still about.
Many thanks for your hugely important sighting!
If you see it again – keep a look out when it dives to see if it has rear flipper tag….there is a common on the south coast that has come from mainland Europe!
Common seals are much rarer in our part of Cornwall than Grey seals
