The growing number of different animals you can see in Norfolk

There are ever-growing numbers of differing animals you can see in Norfolk these days from ungulates to extraordinary bugs to rare breeds. All of these places are fascinating and most are part of an ongoing conservation plan over many years. So, in this month’s edition you can read about one of these in particular:

- Watatunga Wildlife Reserve
- Seals at Horsey Gap
- Horsey Windpump circular walk
- 2 fabulous dog friendly properties in Horsey

Watatunga Wildlife Reserve

Watatunga Wildlife Reserve is a very unusual place to find in Norfolk! Its primary aim is conservation of endangered deer, antelope and birds, and believe me, you’ll see some extraordinary animals. You take a guided tour around the reserve and see ungulates you would only see, for example, in Africa or India. It’s brilliant and worth a visit with the tour.

Seals at Horsey Gap

Yes, it’s that time of year again, and the pregnant seals and the bulls are beginning to appear on the beach ready for the pupping season. The beach will be roped off and manned by volunteers from October 22nd, but it really is a spectacular sight.
Find out all about how to see the Seals at Horsey (and Blakeney Point) here.

Horsey Circular Walk

And while you’re at Horsey, why not take a circular walk starting at Horsey Windpump, going along the beach, see the seals and coming back inland to eventually end back at Horsey Mere.
