Today (Christmas Eve) we went to Horsey on the Norfolk Coast to see some seals.    Apparently there are 340 pups (someone has counted) and adult seals currently living on the sandy coast and its a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some wild animals.

Last time I went seal spotting was at Donna Nook in Lincolnshire, where you could wander amongst the seals.    However, due to increasing visitor numbers, the number of abandoned pups increased dramatically and now they try and keep some distance to prevent this.   Horsey has taken note and parts of the beach have been roped off, but although you are close enough to get some great pictures – should the seals feel like posing for you.

Seal Wardens are patrolling and will answer any questions you may have.

Both of these shots were taken with a Canon 7D and a Canon 300mm f/4 IS lens.   They are not cropped so give an idea of how close you could get.
