Jonesy was rescued on 26th June 2018
Jonesy, 12 weeks old male seal pup, was rescued on 26th June 2018 by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) from Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes.

It is very unusual for a grey seal (pups are usually rescued between September and March)! This pup was picked up as he was very small weighing 13kgs and appears to have been born out of season.
