Seal pup rescue - Kilnsea, Yorkshire

Simon Drayton called me at 15.15 to report a seal with a damaged eye and an injured flipper at Kilnsea. Lisa attended with Andrew Gibson from Spurn Head Nature reserve but was unable to find the seal at first. On a second look they found the seal pup which is approx 4 weeks old with badly weeping eye, but flipper looked ok. Neil spoke to Lindsay at the Sealife Sanctuary and also to Simon Drayton and it was decided it was best for the seal pup to come in for treatment. Neil and Lisa drove the seal up to the Sanctuary and met Simon and Bev Drayton.
