10 days ago grey seal pup 'Bonnie' was rescued on the south coast at the base of a steep cliff.

At only 14kgs she was without doubt the sickest pup we have ever seen at the GSPCA.

The team at the GSPCA are pleased to update that she is doing well and now on solid fish and has become a very hungry lady.

After around the clock tube feeding, medications, vet treatment and a blended fresh fish feed she is now managing whole fish on her own.

Although still very early days in her rehab she appears to be putting on weight and growing in strength day by day.

Nearly a week ago a very sick and injured grey seal pup was rescued on the South coast of Guernsey.

Bonnie has she has been named is without doubt the weakest seal pup ever to be rescued by the GSPCA and the team were overjoyed that she survived the rescue and the first few days.

At only 14kg at time of rescue Bonnie was 26kg lighter than she should be for her age which was only around 2 weeks old.

On Saturday the GSPCA rescued the first sick seal pup in nearly 2 years.

After what was a fairly mild Winter last year many birds and animals have had a much harder season this year with dozens of oiled sea birds being rescued over the last few weeks.

Geoff George Animal Collection Officer was called out on Saturday to what was reported to be a seal pup at Corbier.

When Geoff arrived at the scene he was faced with a steep climb and without doubt one of the thinnest pups we have ever rescued.

Today the GSPCA rescued a second sick seal pup in less than 24 hours since the last.

Eden as she has been fondly named was seen earlier this afternoon in Havelet Bay on the Castle Pier next to Castle Cornet and was reported to the Animal Shelter.

Geoff George Animal Collection Officer rushed to the scene and arrived just after 2pm where he was faced with one of the thinnest pups we have had in many years.

Geoff quickly restrained the very ill pup and transported her to the GSPCA Wildlife Unit.
