First visit to Horsey seals.

by Barry Briggs

My wife and I paid our first visit to Horsey and , “Wow,” what an experience.

The car park team were so very helpful, and by chance we met two seal wardens. They were really knowledgeable and gave us so much information on the seals including a daily totals of current population.

A short walk to the first viewing point and there they were, straight in front of the platform. Just to see these beautiful creatures, completely in there own habitat was mind blowing, males, females and pups everywhere.
We were completely spellbound and just watched and watched.

After a while we moved on to the second viewing area and there were even more of these wonders of nature relaxing in their environment. It is a tidy step to the second viewing area, but well worth the walk, and on route we saw a wealth of birds we were not familiar with, they kept us alert during the walk.

Will certainly be visiting again.

Seals at Horsey

Hi Barry

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience of seeing the seals for the first time. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

It really is a very special sight and one amazing feat of nature. It's incredible to see them all on the beach with their new pups.

I can tell that you and your wife were really struck by the spectacle and it certainly comes across in your shared experience, thank you.

Every day the seal pup count goes up and every year they seem to be breaking more and more records with the number of pups born.

I'm glad to hear you'll be visiting again. I think it's one of those sights that you just can't get out of your mind. I was there early in the season when there were only about 29 new pups so I am going to get over there again to have another view!

Thanks again for sharing.
