Daffy was rescued on 9th December 2014
Daffy, 8-10 week old female grey seal pup, was rescued by Michelle Robinson and Rory Sacree, members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team, from the beach at Duckpool near Bude on 9th December 2014.

The pup was found to be malnourished and wounds to her body. Michelle said "the pup sounded like a walruss when they jumped and tubed her, on the beach, despite her injuries and underweight, think she will be a survivor!"
