But it was far too heavy. I then got up and started waving and shouting to my mum and dad to come quick.
My dad said that we should take it to the side of the bay where the water was deep.
We both lifted the porpoise up and carried it about 200m, had a quick rest to wet it a bit more because it sounded as if it were drowning.
Then we carried it into the water and launched it.
We didn't notice the cold of the water because our minds were on saving this porpoise.
Then we had another problem. The porpoise had obviously become disorientated.
Instead of going out to sea it swam into the rocks.
So my dad and I had to go even further into the water. After about another 15 minutes the porpoise just launched itself into deep water. What a relief!
The experience was the most exhilarating and special moment of my life so far.
To save a whale, dolphin or porpoise is just the greatest achievement you could imagine.
They are such amazing creatures! I admire them.
After the rescue we found out that it was a harbour porpoise.
We named the porpoise Durny after Durness."
