Seal report at Lossiemouth

SealI received a call from a friend, Mr Dave Dickins from RAF Lossiemouth, saying he had been watching a seal for about 20 minutes and it hadn't moved. I contacted BDLMR HQ and they asked us to have a look at it. Whilst enroute with my wife Michelle, also a medic, I received another call telling me the SSPCA had looked at it and said it was ok. As it was on our way home and our first seal call-out it was decided with HQ that we would drop by and have a look. As you can see it appears healthy and a good weight. It had no obvious signs of trauma and its eyes were clear, it remained on its side but did turn its head to watch us. We left it as we found it undisturbed and enjoying the afternoon sun.
