It seems the sunshine encouraged everyone to bathe in its glory today - including this seal.
The Pirate seal spotted the ideal spot to catch some rays after the Environment Agency parked its weeding boat nearby.
This pirate seal overcame our weed cutting crew with extreme cuteness before riding off up the River Tone https://t.co/hYCFtpuSuw
The crew had to "calmly persuade" the lounging mammal to jump off the vessel on the River Tone so they could continue with their work!

The RSPCA is appealing for the owner of a lost peacock to come forward. The spectacular bird was found in Westford, Wellington in Somerset on Saturday. An inspector picked the peacock up and took it to RSPCA West Hatch Wildlife Centre in Taunton where it is now being cared for. It is not known where the peacock could have come from originally as there are not any well-known estates close by that keep the birds.
Somebody should be missing this peacock. They can’t fly very far but do sometimes hop from building to building so it’s likely to have only travelled a short distance of a mile or so. Most peacocks in this country are owned so we’d like to be able to reunite this one with its rightful owner. The peacock has missing tail feathers but this can sometimes happen naturally as the bird moults. If you recognise this bird or know who owns it you can ring the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
