Update: 9th May 2006 - Guvnor (wearing hat tag J6) along with Wombat (wearing hat tag J3), Shambles (wearing hat tag J7) and Stella (wearing hat tag J4) were all released back into the wild on 5th of May 2006 at Gwithian. Shambles was first out of the trailer and in the water. Both Stella and Guvnor were happy to leave the trailer and go in. Guvnor on the other hand thought the water was a little on the cold side. Guvnor came down the ramp his flippers touched the water a gave a moan and turned round and headed back up the ramp. At this point both Stella and Wombat both waited for Guvnor to become a little braver and all headed out to sea together.
