Distressed seal pup washes up on Saunton Sands

A DISTRESSED seal pup washed up on Saunton Sands beach earlier this week.
The British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team were alerted at around 1pm on Monday by a woman who found the pup while walking on the beach.
The pup is thought to be around three to four weeks old and was seriously dehydrated and under-nourished when it was found.
It is the first seal to have washed up on the coasts of North Devon this year despite the bad weather.
Andy Cleverdon, of the BDMLR, said the pup is likely to have come from Morthoe, one of two colonies in the area.
Andy and his wife, along with Diana Lewis from North Devon Animal Ambulance, went to assess the pup which had become separated from its mother.
