THE Scottish SPCA is caring for a harbour seal who was rescued from the Isle of Mull.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted after volunteers from British Divers Marine Life Rescue discovered the seal on a road.

The adorable harbour seal is now being rehabilitated at the charity’s National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, where he has been named Flounder.

Centre Manager Colin Seddon said, “Flounder is the first harbour seal of the year to come into our care.

“He’s recuperating well and is currently being looked after by our wildlife assistant Nikki Andrews.

“Harbour pups, unlike grey seal pups, are born straight into the water and can swim from birth. Any found on a beach away from their mother are likely to be in trouble so we do recommend calling us to seek advice as soon as possible.

“We currently have 10 harbour seals in our centre and will care for them until they are around 12 weeks old before releasing them back into the wild.”

The Scottish SPCA encourage anyone who discovers a harbour seal found alone on a beach to call their animal helpline on 03000 999 999 as soon as possible.
