Seal Spotted in London's River Thames

A seal was seen swimming around the River Thames in London on June 7.

Londoner Leo Murray captured footage of the mammal from a canoe near the city’s Brentford Marina.

A September 2019 report in the Guardian noted that the Thames is home to both grey seals and harbor seals, while a study around that time had discovered that the river running through the British capital was home to 138 baby seals.

Still, sightings are rare enough that the Zoological Society of London has a web page dedicated to tracking when seals are spotted by the public. Credit: Leo Murray via Storyful
