Rare black seal pup

Definitely one of my favourite wildlife encounters of the year. This is a melanic grey seal pup.
He's probably about 2 weeks old and was spotted at Donna Nook nature reserve In December. However this is still his pup fur and I imagine he'll lose his distinctive colour over the next week.
