Horsey Grey Seals -2014

Recommended Posts

Just after Christmas we took our yearly trip to see the breeding seals at Horsey in Norfolk. It was a misty morning at the beach. Here's a few shots:

 

This little seal had come up the beach and over into the dunes, they do this to rub off their pup fur on the rough marram grass.

Seal patrol are on hand to try and guide wayward pups back to the beach:

But this little pup isn't keen to move!

On the beach, pups rest up while adult seals play in the surf:

A few pups still have their first fluffy coat:

Plastic waste is a true nightmare for the environment...

Seals are precious; plastic is not.

 

But the series of the pup is great; I've only seen them once, off of Cabo and it was delightful.

 

I live on the water and you would not believe what washes up esp. after a storm. Its' disgusting. :angry:

That's what I feel like after a holiday meal.

I like the contrast between the seal's shades of grey and the textured sand.

I'd never before heard of Horsey. As I like seals, it sounds like a village worth visiting.

Thank you for bringing it to the attention of those of us who've never been to Norfolk.

Tom K.
