It is truly relaxing when we get to watch the beauty of nature. The big trees, the refreshing air, and the humming of the bids. It is truly a sight and a feeling to behold, that is why Ian Hellis has been fond of bird watching. While he was in the middle of doing his hobby, peaking through his telescope, instead of seeing birds, he sees something peculiar. In a meadow, he saw a group of cows gathering around in a pool of mud.
He can’t see clearly through his telescope what it is that caught the attention of the cows, so he decided to have a closer look. As he looks closer, he saw something moving in the mud, and was shocked to see a baby seal.
It is unusual to find a seal where the cows were. It is a mystery how the baby seal was able to travel three miles in land away from the ocean. Moreover, when he checked the condition of the baby seal, he found out the it was in bad shape and it will not be safe to just return the seal in the ocean.
He immediately contacted the Skegness Natureland Seal Sanctuary to rescue the poor seal. After checking the seal, it was found out that it has a lung infection, and was dehydrated and malnourished.
The sanctuary took in and cared for the baby seal. Being taken care of the sanctuary, the seal was brought back to its health, and has gained a significant weight. She has also found a companion, another seal named Charlie.
Since the seal has been responding positively to the care given to it by the sanctuary, it was released to the ocean, its natural habitat. The sanctuary hopes that both seals will be able to survive the ocean despite their long journey.
