Seals at Horsey in March - annual moult

by Michael Gale

Absolutely incredible sight. We visited on 22/3/2022 and although all the pups were born the amount of seals was astonishing. All on the shore line, taking in the sun, like the Brits on the beach in Benidorm!!

We were allowed onto the beach and without getting too close had an incredible experience watching and listening to this amazing spectacle.

We had no idea that this was something we could do until the day before when someone in a pub told us to visit in a very nonchalant way saying that we might see the odd seal. If only he knew!! We'd Love to meet him again to thank him. The most memorable time was had. Worth every penny for the car park!!

Thanks Michael for your wonderful comments on the seals - I can hear your excitement in your words.

At that time of year they are all on the beach for their annual molt, replacing their old coats, hence the large amounts of seals that you saw.

You were probably quite lucky too - although most people come to see them in the winter when they have their seal pups.

Very glad you got to see them!
