Milford Haven Seal Hospital 27/10/2009

Today's windy and unsettled weather made it an ideal day to make our annual visit to the Milford Haven Seal Hospital which is housed in a disused oil refinery storage tank at the entrance to the docks.
There were 5 pups in the hospital today and apparantely so far this year it has been a lot quieter than last year probably because of the very settled weather we have had recently but I am sure this will change especially after the wind and rough seas we have had over the last few days.

The pups are kept in heated compartments with 2 small pools which the pups are constantly in and out learning their swimming skills.

It is well worth a visit especially at this time of year with both Bobby and Harry really looking forward to our visit.

We spent a very pleasurable hour there watching the pups being fed whole Mackerel. Terry and his volunteer staff do a fantastic job and as the hospital relies solely on donations they need all the financial help they can get.
