An Illawarra beach had a special visitor yesterday.
A seal enjoyed the first day of spring by resting on the rocks about 150 metres north of the ocean pool at Bulli.
The seal was assessed and monitored.
Surf Life Saving Illawarra has reminded beach goers they must stay at least 40 metres away from an adult seal and 80 metres from a pup.
