At half tide she was around the Little French's ledges. A group of a dozen or so large seals were occupying the higher ledge while on a lower spot about 50 yards away ten or so smaller animals were hauled out. We watched for a half an hour or so and she didn't haul out. She cruised around the smaller group taking shallow dives and tried to get out a couple of times. I rather gathered her presence was not being terribly well received. Will follow her adventures with great interest now that I have found you.
