We have time to visit the Orkney Seal Rescue centre in South Ronaldsay thanks to Ross. He shows us the only current inhabitant; a seal pup rescued from Finstown last month as a very young pup. Thankfully it is making excellent progress. It has huge eyes like deep black rock pools.
It has plenty of room, healthy food and a fair amount of exercise. It’s one of the lucky ones.
Please visit their website Orkney Seal Rescue to see all they do.
