It may be chilly but at least someone is still making the most of the sunny weather.
The grey seals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary have been taking full advantage and spending all their time hauled out on the side of the pool basking in the rays.
It’s great to see them all hauled out enjoying the sun shine, we have our sun canopies up around the pool to provide them with shade but they are really lapping up any sun we are getting at the moment!
The team have given the seals ice blocks with fish inside to help them keep cool.
They also enjoy the hose the team use throughout the day, which they love playing with.
