A seal release at Portencross is taking place on Wednesday.

Hessilhead Wildlife Nature Reserve will be carrying out the release near the old pier at Portencross at 2pm.

The last event on January 5 drew a big crowd of over 100 wellwishers when two seals were released into the Clyde after being cared for by the nature reserve.

Hessilhead, based in Beith, care for injured and orphaned animals and operates a 24-hour emergency service.

It includes a seal hospital with indoor pool.

A number of undernourished seals have been rescued over recent months.

Last month, Hessilhead Nature Reserve returned Aaron and Leo to the Clyde in front of over 100 wellwishers. For more details, see here
