SIR - You carried a nice story on the baby seal - I wonder if there is any connection? On Monday, February 15 at 4.30 pm my wife Sylvia and I spotted an adult seal near the steps of Ilfracombe inner and outer harbour.

We watched for five minutes. It seemed to be looking around for something before disappearing in the outer harbor where it again popped up.

My wife thinks it was looking for its baby. We reported our sighting to the Ilfracombe Aquarium. People are often too quick to rescue young animals/birds.
