A record number of grey seals have bred at Blakeney Point and Horsey beach in Norfolk. 1700 have been recorded at Horsey and nearly 3000 at Blakeney

The seals bring in thousands of visitors over Winter which also brings in much-needed revenue to local pubs and cafes

Volunteer wardens patrol the beaches of Horsey and Winterton ensuring walkers and dogs don't get too near the pups. Too much disturbance and the parents could disown their offspring and leave them alone on the beach to fend for themselves.
