Seal pups on Blakeney Point 

Blakeney Point is a perfect breeding site for grey seals and seal pups are born between November and early January. In 2001 just 25 pups were born but we have seen numbers increase year on year and now Blakeney Point is the largest seal colony in England with over 2,000 pups born each winter. Find out more information on grey seals, responsible viewing and how you can help us to care for this special site and its grey seal colony.
