During the early afternoon I had a walk out on Halling Common.By then there was more cloud but it remained bright and warm,the river was low.I met Ken (Halling Blog) and suggested we looked along the river to see if the Common Seal was in its favourite spot.We were both very pleased to find not one but two,its pup was also hauled out on the bank.I had heard that the adult had a pup but this was the first time I had actually seen it.

Birds were rather thin on the ground but I did see - Yellowhammer 1,Meadow Pipit 1 and Green Woodpecker 1,plus the usual Gulls.
