Great Pictures.
Im interested in what the SSPCA advice was.
Apparently its quite common for baby seals to be left by their mothers on the beach at high tide and to be retrieved on the next high tide. There was a pup on the beach when I was growing up in Ardentinny and after well meaning folk tried to move it the wildlife experts advised us to leave him put. They had reports of seals being abandoned after being moved and suggested the best option was to leave and check back after the next tide.
Glad there was a good outcome this time.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
