Waiting for the tide?

It’s rare to see seals sunbathing in the harbour. Usually they lunch in the estuary at high tide, then return to the rocky islands out in the English channel to relax. It was only when I looked closely at the photo at home that I realised the creature was wounded, with blood on its neck – a fight about the ladies I expect. It will surely recover, since it flipped around fast to check on my movements, hence the poor focus.
