This is Pinkafo - the second seal to be rescued off Norfolk with a plastic ring around its neck and nursed back to health.

"This is the best bit of our work seeing them go back where they should be . It makes it all worthwhile really because it's just fabulous. This is why we put all the long hours in ."

This was Pinkafo in December - so badly injured RSPCA staff weren't sure she'd make it through the night.

David Vyse was one of the people who rescued her in December after seeing her struggle since the summer.

"This one turned up just before Christmas laying in the middle of the beach quite forlorn and by herself and there was ample opportunity then to get our rescue nets . She was in a very, very poor state. "

Three seals have been rescued , two released now and one, called Sir David Attenborough , is recovering. But the seals wearing white, green and black plastic rings are still in the wild.
