Forlorn

On the Deer and Seal Photography day last weekend we photographed Red and Fallow Deer as well as Grey and Common Seals. It wasn’t just about deer and seals with sightings of various fungi and loads of birds. However, it was the first dozen or so Grey Seal Pups of the season that stole our hearts. This little chap was hours old; still carrying his remnant umbilical cord he has a lot of rich milk to drink …  and although he was looking a little forlorn it won’t take long for him to ‘fill out’ a bit.

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.
