Update: 7th March 2006 - Quinn along with Guinness, Blonde and Bob where released back into the wild on Tuesday the 7th of March 2006. All four seals were loaded up in the morning. All were keen to get in to the cage and get in to the trailer, to start the journey to Port Gaverne. The rain which had started early in the morning showed no sign of easing up, and the seals seemed unaffected by the wet weather.

On arriving at Port Gaverne, all four seals were keen to get in to the water and start their adventure. Guinness and Quinn were out the trailer and straight in to the water, Bob and Blonde were not so keen. Bob and Blonde found that playing in the shallows was much exciting then exploring the wide open seas. After a while these two realised that their pool was a lot bigger and headed out to deeper water.
