Return to the Wild

The young common seal rescued on Hove beach back in August is now recovered and was released back into then sea by the RSPCA Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre Mallydams today.

Below you can see a series of photographs all taken by Nikki Lambert of the moment the seal pup was released. The seal has been tagged so if the seal is unfortunate enough to be stranded in the future we will know about it. Who knows, we may also get a glimpse of this pup from time to time, as with Twinkle, the seal as it will be recognisable from the flipper tag and possibly from the photographs taken for ID purposes.

The release of this seal was filmed by Autumn Watch and should be aired on Friday 4th November.
