Ginger

On one of our Norfolk Safaris last week we were scanning the beach and amid the Grey and Common Seals there was one that looked a little odd.

Shining out like a beacon this seal certainly stood out. It was decidedly orange; perhaps best described as ‘ginger’. We walked down the dunes and along the sand to investigate. Sure enough ‘Ginger’ was a Common Seal but a very different colour morph.

Common Seals like Greys have a colour range; from black to pale brown through to white and everything between. ‘Ginger’ however was at the far end of the Common Seal colour spectrum.
