Sea-lion visitor - December 2007

In an Email from Johnny 31st December 2007 :


"We have another visitor staying just down the road at the Turtle ponds - a sea lion! - Turned up last week and seemingly happy to just bask on the rocks and dip in and out of the water.


It`s been around 5 days so far and we`ll wait and see if it stays.


Loads of folk down each day to look at him and he`s not the least bit concerned.


I reckon he`s followed a turtle by mistake! "
