Seal call-out, Runswick Bay near Whitby

At 15.40 we were called by Helen, an RSPCA officer, as they had received a called for a seal pup at Runswick Bay just north of Whitby. Helen was miles away and asked if we had a medic that would be able to attend. Gary Bolton a medic from Scarborough left work early and went straight to the reported pup. When Gary arrived he found that it was a juvenile seal and in good health, he spoke with James Barnett and was also able to take photo's of the seal with his camera phone which was sent to James. After assessing the photo's and talking with Gary, James was happy with the seals condition and was not in need of our help. Many thanks to Gary and James.
