Photographing nature can be an amazing thing to do and finding a beach full of seals was an ‘Amazing Site’.

Photographing Seals in Norfolk

After spotting a loan seal off Hemsby beach a chance conversation with the man on the great little fresh crab stall pointed me in the direction of Horsey. He told me there were about 500 seals there at the moment (April 27th 2014)

When are the seals at Horsey Beach?

They are there a couple of periods a year, around March/April time and Christmas time when they have their pups.

Getting to Horsey Seal Beach.

So it was in the car around 5 miles north of Hemsby and about a mile further up from the lovely Horsey Windmill is a beach road to the left (near Horsey Corner). It has a pay and display beach car-park ,£1 for an hour £2 for 2 so make sure you have change as there is nothing else there!
The right hand corner of the car-park takes you talong a path to the main seal area which is 1/2 a mile-ish walk and takes you right to the beach. If you go over the dunes about 1/2 way you can walk the other away along the beach and maybe catch the seals further up.

Anyway what an amazing site, just to be able to get close to and see some real wildlife, has to be done and great photo opportunities but keep nice and quite.
