Playful seal pup learns to paddleboard

Thanks to Paul Hyman of Active 360 for these lovely pictures of a seal pub which lives somewhere between Richmond and Kew , who has decided to join them on several occasions of late.

At the risk of anthropomorphising, it does seem as if he just wants to join in and play with them, now they’re open again and back on the water.

“He just hops up on the board and takes an interest in what we’re doing” says Paul. “It’s happened several times now and we see him a lot”.

Pictures below – the seal they’ve been seeing in the water this year. Picture above – one which accompanied them a few times last year.
