    Yes, I think I might have seen it whilst looking for seals. I remember a row of seals rather neatly spaced out, before twigging / getting the binoculars out . This is somewhere quite a bit south of "Seal" rythe.....

    Yes, I'm familiar with that feature. I'm pretty sure it's not the scaffolding we're talking about here and if it is it I can't see why the sudden fuss.

    Yes, but you sometimes get lucky. The only photo I have of a seal feeding was taken there.

    Yes. I think what we have both seen is a bit further north up the the channel compared to the location of "Scaffoldhenge"

    Agree, and more inshore (I think).

    Also hats off for the 'Scaffoldhenge' term, genius - also your "evenly spaced seals" description of the other thing. Certainly that's why it sticks in my mind.

    The 'Other Thing' you mention, is this the thing you can see from the beach at HISC?

    I can't be sure. If you can see a thing that looks like evenly spaced seals from the Beach at HISC on the SW end of Thorney island then yes! There certainly aren't two of them.

    That's it, I tried to convince members of the Tideway Association that it was a row of seals but it was pointed out to me that most seals had not been to Sandhurst.
