Underweight seal pup rescued from Old Hunstanton
Medics rescued an underweight seal on the West Norfolk coastline yesterday morning.
British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) ensured a seal pup was transported from Old Hunstanton beach to the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre.
Another seal pup was also taken to the Gayton Road centre after being found at Shoeburyness in Essex.
Posting on social media, BDMLR said: "They were both underweight and too young to be on their own. Now they are being cared for at RSPCA East Winch until they grow bigger and stronger."
The BDMLR rescue hotline can be contacted at 01825 765546. It was formed in 1988, after divers got together in response to a "mass mortality of common seals" in the Wash area.
