Update: 1st July 2006 - Storm wearing hat tag ID C4, along with Wilson (wearing hat tag ID J2), Speckle and Bess were all released back into the wild at Porthtowan on Wednesday morning (28th of June 2006) at 7am. All the seals went off OK, with a little bit of hesitation, and started to head off in wrong direction before realising the sea was in the other direction, and went straight for it. Two of them spent sometime surfing in on the waves. Five minutes after they went, a pod of eight bottlenose dolphins turned up to meet them.
