A reader calling himself Daveboy sent us this picture of a seal in Portsmouth Harbour.

He says: ‘Whilst sitting on a bench with my camera near the Jolly Roger pub at Priddys Hard with the intention of taking some shots of the harbour suddenly, about 20 metres from where I was sitting, something bobbed up onto the surface of the water.

‘To my surprise it was a seal coming up for air, I immediately took two photos of before it disappeared under the water again.

‘It was probably a Common seal also known as a Harbour seal, which has, I believe, been seen on quite a few occasions.’
