Sir Tom was rescued on 14th May 2020
Sir Tom, the first rescued common seal pup of 2020 season, was found on 14th May 2020 at Holkham beach by medics from BDMLR after being separated from his mum. He was found at 3 days old but weighing only 9.1kgs so he was extremely underweight.

The white fluffy coat you can see should have been shed prior to birth so this tells us Sir Tom was born prematurely.

Sir Tom Update - 30th May 2020 : Sir Tom is being well cared for by the specialist animal care team who are feeding him a special fish soup mixture every three hours to try to fatten him up!

Sir Tom is giving everyone a wave from his hospital pen. Click here to watch a short video.

He´s not quite ready for 100 laps around his pen yet but he has started his swimming lessons and loves to blow bubbles.
