Seal Angelsey1AN inquisitive seal has paid a visit to a North Wales power station.

The female adult had taken a wrong turn and ended up at Anglesey’s Wylfa Power Station site on Wednesday (15 October).

Seals sometimes get dragged along by the strong currents created by the power station and can slip through the bars at the end of the sea pipe and end up in the cooling chambers.

Luckily the seal was unharmed by her adventure and was recovered by RSPCA animal collection officer (ACO) William Galvin.

ACO Galvin said: “I had a couple of people help me to get her into the stretcher.

“The seal wasn’t injured and was healthy so we released her on Cemlyn Bay, about a mile away from the power station.”
