25th of November: Pup count reaches four figures

Last Wednesday's Grey Seal pup count on Blakeney Point totalled 573. This was 30 more than the same date last year, suggesting that we may be heading for another record-smashing season.

Today's count revealed that a lot of pups have been born over the last week. With newborn pups further east along the Point than ever before, we knew it was going to be a high count.

An impressive total of 1269 pups were recorded.
Including this one:
While we make every effort to cordon off the breeding area, seals have a habitat of moving and disobeying our fence-lines. If you visit the Point, please obey our signs and give all seals plenty of space. For more information, see our web-site. And don't forget, the best way to see the seals is from the ferry trips that go regularly from Morston Quay.
