Joe Wicks was rescued on 20th May 2020
Joe Wicks, a common seal pup, was found on 20th May 2020 from Brancaster beach after being separated from his mum. He was found at 2 days old but weighing only 7kgs so he is underweight. Common seals are usually born at 10kgs.

The white fluffy coat you can see should have been shed prior to birth so this tell us Joe Wicks was born prematurely.
