Seal Rescue with Melly, Stevie, Cole and Ryan.

My final friend visit of 2013 featured some of my most favourite people.

With limited time for exploring Norfolk we opted to return to a place I regularly take first time visiters to Norfolk to, Wells-Next-The-Sea beach.  It is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful beaches and so far everyone I have taken there agrees.  During the surge tide those who had visited were as concerned as I about how the Norfolk coastline, most notably Wells would fare.  When possible places to visit were discussed the unanimous decision was to head to Wells and see what changes there were.

What we didn’t expect was to find a beached seal.  One we couldn’t in good conscience abandon, esecially considering it’s obvious distress and the possibility of injury or worse if we left it.  Several calls to NTCoast, Natural England, RSPCA and Seal Rescue later we were finally satisfied enough that help was on the way.  Aware our parking ticket was running out we slowly and reluctantly headed back to the car hoping help would arrive faster than the tide.

As yet the fate of the seal remains unknown.  When contacted, Seal Rescue informed us that the RSPCA had taken over but emails to them have gone unanswered.  We can only assume they got there in time!
