I am building up a portfolio of the seal colony in Chichester Harbour in the UK. 5 of them have had GPS transmitters glued onto their necks that transmit data about where they have been. When they moult, these fall off. They are mainly Harbour seals and a few Grey seals. The easy way to tell the difference is to look at the head. The Harbours have a dog like head with a dip in its face where the nose meets the forhead at eye level. The Greys have a triangular shaped head (when viewed from the side) and have no dip in the face. Often referred to as a "Roman nose".Pics 88,89,90 copyright Kerry Hopwood
