A Sea of Seal

Some big numbers of Grey Seals on the East coast at the moment. On yesterday’s tour we estimated we could see at least a thousand from one viewpoint. Lots of moulting moaning itchy pinnipeds.

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.
