Seal (Grey?) in Tidal Nene.

first heard (blowing) then seen as it surfaced on out-going tide alongside Eldernell Wash, stayed under for c1min in which time it swam c150 mtrs and stayed surfaced for c20 seconds. Of all the other common seals i've seen in Nene this one imediately struck me as different - with a long nose running straight into forehead.

Nostrils wide open - taking in a lung-full.

This pic shows a bulging snout with a convexed bridge

I reckon you're right with Grey Seal Jon.
