Rey was rescued on 28th December 2016
Rey, female grey seal pup, was rescued on 28th December 2016 from Overstrand beach near Cromer. At approximately 3 weeks old she was weaned from mum but had picked up some bite wounds and had various superficial cuts on her body as well as a broken flipper.

At only 15kgs on arrival she was very underweight so needed feeding every four hours on a special fish soup mixture.

Rey Update - 26th January 2017 : Rey is now doing much better weighing in at 20kgs and eating 3kgs of fish a day.

Once her flipper is healed she will move to the outdoor pool where she can eat as much fish as she likes until she is her target weight of 40kgs and then released back to the wild!
