Dawn, a member of the public, highlighted us to a black coated pup in the very far back dunes at Winterton a couple of days ago. On investigation, we found the pup and returned it to the beach.
We were very surprised to receive a further message from Dawn that the black pup was still in the dunes. It’s very unusual to have two black pups especially in such close proximity.
With Dawn’s help we finally managed to locate the pup. It was slowly making its way along the dog walking path when we found it but still a long way from the home.
We decided to give it some assistance and picked it up in the stretcher and relocated it back to the beach. It finally settled on the shore line with another seal.
A very beautiful pup!
We continue to pick up netting and rope from our beaches.
