A lost seal has been spotted 27 miles inland in Lincolnshire while it was fishing for food.
The seal was found at Low Locks, off the River Welland, near Deeping St James.
Normally found in the Wash, it is reported to have appeared in the Lincolnshire village during the last week.
The RSPCA believe the seal was following a dredger that was turning up fish and it is likely the easy meal is what has brought it inland.
