Hooded seal rescued near Skegness
It is the second time the seal, called Eve, has lost her way.
In August she was found by staff at a seal sanctuary in Friedrichskoog, Germany, where she was fitted with a tracking device.
Staff at the German reserve had tracked Eve across the North Sea to Scotland where she had turned and headed south to where she was eventually found in Lincolnshire.
Naturelands’ Duncan Yeadon said it was very unusual to find a hooded seal off the Lincolnshire coast.
The seal will now be fed until it reaches a healthy weight and then released back into the sea.
