'That's the Spot' - Grey Seal Glides on Its Back Along Stony Seabed

That itch that you just can’t scratch can be hugely frustrating, though that doesn’t look likely to be an issue for this grey seal, captured gliding its back along the stony seabed off the UK coast recently.

Footage of the seal was posted to Twitter by Ben Burville, a scuba diver who spends plenty of time in the waters close to the Farne Islands in the North Sea.
