Monday 26th June 2017

Great start to Monday morning.

On my way to work this morning,  I watched as some rspca ladies unloaded a cage containing a seal.I offered to help carry the cage to the shore line which they accepted,  then stayed to watch as this pup nervously entered the water. I didn't stay to see but I am told it quite happily stayed around a while before moving off.

Seal release combemartin.
