Day trippers visiting Bardsey Island on August Bank Holiday Monday were intrigued to see a seal peering over the edge of a moored dinghy.
Tony Bruce, skipper of the Enlli Charter vessel Highlander II, said: "He's there most days. As the tide drops, the seals haul themselves onto rocks - but this one's decided it's more comfortable to haul itself onto my dinghy."
"The smaller seals who've lain there before would usually hop out when the big boat bumps up against the dinghy, but this one's getting quite bullish and cantankerous," added Tony, who's beginning to view it as a bit of a nuisance.
But it is proving a hit with the visitors. "It's what they come here for and they love it and he doesn't mind having his picture taken," said Tony. "And I suppose he's not really damaging the boat."
What are these?
