Common Seals

Some great sightings of Common Seal on our recent tours as many are easily seen at regular haul outs. Unlike the vertical nostrils of Grey Seals the nostrils of Common Seals point together more ‘teddy bear’ like. In profile they have a dog like snout rather than the sloping forehead of Grey Seals.

Other than Grey and Common Seals in Norfolk there are several vagrant seals that have occurred in the past; Ringed, Hooded, Bearded, Harp and Walrus.

I keep looking … but nothing so far.

    They’re such beautiful creatures! It always feels a privilege when you see one 🙂
