Our third new arrival at the seal hospital

Seal pupThird in was another male pup from the Western Isles, this time on Uig, not far from where we spent a few days last week with the pilot whales. Picked up by Heather, the ex SSPCA officer on the island, by ferry to Harris and picked up by Sandy once again and driven to Stornaway on Lewis where Sandy cared for it over two nights before getting the first available ferry to Ullapool where local co ordinator Jim Thomson bought it to the Hospital.

Male called Curly weighing in at 12.7kg. Two and a half to three weeks old and very skinny with lots of bite marks and wounds.
