Grey seals vs common seals
Can you tell the difference?
Grey seals are one of two species of Pinniped found in Manx waters, the other being the common seal (Phoca vitulina). Although the common seal population around the Isle of Man is much smaller than that of the grey seals, it's not a fallacy, they do occur here and during my time on the Calf of Man, I was lucky enough to see one!
