Seal sightings in the ouse?

I overheard a few conversations around the precinct this weekend about a group of seals being seen in the river?! Can anyone substantiate this with some photo evidence? I was under the impression that they were salt water creatures. To be honest I'm a bit frightened to let my dog swim in the river as I have heard stories of seal attacking dogs.

We had one last year. Parked itself on a mudbank and lookedvery pleased with itself.If you keep your distance your dog will have nothing to fear.

Once those lovely fluffy cute things have decimated the fish and eel population, what will happen then. Some fisheries have seen part eaten fish carcasses of 20lb carp on the banks and some rivers have reported a 95% reduction in migrant eels.

Go and annoy a seal you numpty.The biggest threat to fish and eels is human,through over fishing and pollution.

Seals in the Ouse is a fairly regular occurrence. They've been seen up past Hamsey weir. Last year one seemed to take up residence not far from the Snowdrop. A group of seals would be news though.
