Seal pup rescue at Frinton-on-Sea, Essex

Called out today to common pup at Frinton. On arrival pup was in sea being bashed against sea wall and rock groyne, unfortunately could not do anything as tide was still rising. Arranged to go back mid afternoon with Neil Saban and Clair Hooker, we found pup on stretch of sand and Clair uplifted it (her first one), I then tubed etc and good old Jim ( Jim Farr - RSPCA Inspector ) arranged transport and it is on its way to East Winch (RSPCA Wildlife Hospital).Whilst Clair and Neil were getting pup, phone rang and another was reported at Jaywick so after dealing with pup 1 three medics dashed to Jaywick to find the healthiest looking pup in the world being bothered by members of the public with cameras. We stood around making disapproving noises and advised a couple of people to leave it alone and eventually the crowd dispersed and we left it to have a kip.
