IC Man to the Rescue.– again.

There I was minding my own business shooting out to sea off the bluff at hayle rivermouth when it was brought to my attention that yet another seal Pup had got himself stranded down on the beach while the tide continued to head out..

I went down and checked him out and apart from being exhausted he looked okay so I decided it was probably best to just at least inform the rescue team and see what they said.. I radio’d Leanne to give them a call and I stayed down the beach with the pup.

Well the rescue team decided to send someone out just to check the seal out and as we waited for them to arrive, he decided it was time to go and promptly woke up.. had a little grumble at me and set off on his colossal journey to the sea.

and finally water and the pup was home safe and heading out to sea

Just as the pup hit the water the rescue guy turned up and walked down the beach to where I was.. we had a little chat he checked over the pics on the camera and was happy that the pup was okay and would probably head back to its family up towards Gwithian.

a last pause before heading out..

and that was it, excitement over for the day and time to head back for us.. if it carries on then I’m gonna have to get me and Leanne trained up to recognise the seals and know if they’re in distress or not.. as it seems to be becoming a pastime rescuing seal pups…

Take care everyone
