A tiny harbour seal pup, named Beth, has been rescued by Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness.

A tiny harbour seal pup, named Beth, has been rescued by Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness.

The pup was found orphaned on the beach to the south of Skegness at only a few days old with no mother in sight.

A little underweight but otherwise in good condition, if it was left on the beach it would have succumbed to starvation and dehydration.

The pup was rescued by staff from Natureland and taken back to the seal hospital where rehydration fluids were given via stomach tube.
After a long sleep, the pup is now doing well and is tucking into her fish five times a day.

When she is big and strong enough to fend for herself she will be released back into the sea.

Natureland has rescued and rehabilitated nearly 700 seals since it started this work back in 1965 and now regularly deals with approx 40 per year.
