A trip to Horsey Gap to see the seal pups.
Horsey Gap is found in the North East of Norfolk, a county in the UK. Every winter, Grey Seals come to the beach to give birth and look after their seal pups. Some info on Horsey itself can be found [here](https://www.explorenorfolkuk.co.uk/seals-at-horsey.html)

Today it was a very cold a windy one. We were dressed up to the nines in many layers of thermals as it was hovering around 5 degrees c. It's only a 10 minute walk from the car park to the first viewing area and then another 20 or so more minutes to the second one which was longer and had a lot more seals on it. The count of seals from 3rd January is

Adult seals - 294
Pups on beach and in dunes - 451
Total pups this season - 2062

A lot of them are now old enough to hit the ocean but there were plenty left about to get some great images. Hope you like them. All were taken on the Canon 60D with the 100-400L IS lens at 800 ISO (it was pretty overcast and handholding at 400mm was tricky)

I’ve been meaning to go But haven’t made it so far; it’s only a few miles up the coast from us.  We went last spring so managed to miss the pups.

I love to come to the UK for my Winter's so I am definitely putting this on the 'must do ' list. So amazing.

Do you know how long into the New Year they are there? When do they move off to new grounds or is this their permanent home?

I believe they stick around through January and start to move off into Feb. I think some adults stick around but the pups all move on as I understand it

You also have Blakeney which is just a bit further west for even more seals. They do boat trips to those ones too.
