A shocked homeowner woke up to find a seal sitting on her patio.

The woman saw the adventurous woman – named Dandy by the locals – spread out on her lawn in Billinghay, Lincolnshire.

RSPCA rescuers were called out, and after making sure the amphibious mammal was in good health, she returned her to the water.

Dandy used to make a splash when she climbed on another women’s paddleboard during a lesson in Boston.

PC Martin Green, from the local force’s wildlife team, said he had received a call from a friend who said ‘his mother had woken up and found the seal on the terrace’.

Dandy appears to have encrypted up a riverbank before slipping into the garden.

The RSPCA said they were warned by police and after checking Dandy released her back into the water where she ‘happily swam away’.
