A grey seal spotted on the beach near Holywell on Saturday evening has made its way further down the coast.

The marine mammal was seen out of the water and Trevor Weeks, founder of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue Ambulance Service and advanced marine mammal medic for British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), sent in this photo and said the marine mammal had now moved to Seaford. He said the team was a bit worried about public interaction with the seal and how much time it had been out of the water but added, “To have a healthy grey seal on a beach is quite unusual. BDMLR has been monitoring him and it’s a case of keeping an eye on what he is doing.”
