On a cold and icy morning, Rich and I got up early to drive to the beautiful Horsey beach on the Norfolk coast to see if we could spot some seals. There is a colony of Grey seals living there between end of November and early February. They come to the beach to give birth to their babies and hang about a little bit, as the fur of the newborns isn’t waterproof straight away so they can’t go in the water for very long. They just kind of bask in the sun and play on the beach for a few months until they’re ready to go. Not a bad life if you ask me.
We had never been to Horsey before so we didn’t know what to expect. I thought we’d only see the seals from far away but we were super lucky, as one of them decided to be adventurous and come a little closer! You can’t touch them of course but don’t they look super soft and adorable?
