Freddie was rescued on 15th June 2018
Freddie, 5 days old male common seal pup, was rescued on 15th June 2018 from Heacham North beach weighing a whopping 13.5kgs.

At Freddie´s age, we would usually expect commons to be coming in at around 9-10kgs, so it is a good sign that he is already above the expected weight.
