The pup seal spotted at Papakura is now being watched by a group of people.
The little fellow appears to have come up the estuary earlier today and got stuck on land when the tide went out.
It is not the infamous seal that took over a car wash in the area earlier this week though - this mammal is a baby.
It's been spotted on Ray Small Dr in a rocky area near the estuary.

Police are not guarding the seal as it is not in an area where the public can get too close, however a Department of Conservation ranger is on the way to see the seal pup, and see if it needs any help.
