Seal, Tate Hill Beach, Whitby, North Yorkshire

Juvenile Common sealFriday was a very busy day, I received 4 stranding calls between 09.30 and 13.30 and another a short time after.

The first was via the RSPCA for a seal thought to be a pup in distress with crowds around it on the North Yorkshire coast. We had also received calls the night before from members of the public and Scarborough Sealife Sanctuary. Gary Pearson a local medic attended and found the seal a juvenile Common in lovely condition posing for photographs! After a short while the seal went back in to the water.
