Apologies for the poor quality - this is just a record of my first exciting digiscope encounter: seals (or sealions, I'm not sure which) off the coast of Dunmore East, Ireland. Hope this is the right place to post such things!

Yes Grey Seals - "Roman" nose, nostrils that don't meet at the bottom, and the typical "chilling out with head out of water" pose; Common also does that but less often.
