Seal spotted near Holywell

A seal was spotted on the beach near Holywell on Saturday evening (May 18).

The marine mammal was seen out of the water and snapped by James Maynard who sent this picture in.

Earlier this month a seal found stranded on a Seaford beach sadly had to be put down.

Wildlife rescuers received a report of a healthy, four-foot seal sunning itself just east of the Hope Gap Steps, which are located just west of the Cuckmere Haven at Seaford. A second report came in half an hour later reporting a seal injured on the beach with blood on its rear flippers.
