The Grey Seals of Blakeney Point North Norfolk

I would like to share with you this excellent video by Dave Byford, a professional photographer and videographer from Manningtree in Essex.

Blakeney Point is looked after by the National Trust and is one of North Norfolk’s most important nature reserves.  It is a sanctuary for terns and many other bird species as well as being a haven for one of the largest population of seals in the UK. This video also portrays the exceptional natural beauty of the Point.

You can walk to Blakeney Point from Cley beach but some of the walking is on shingle so it can be hard going. Alternatively, there are boat trips to view the seals from Morston and Blakeney. The times of trips are dictated by the tides.

At the bottom of the video screen click on settings and select the HD stream. It is also best watched full screen by clicking on the square far right next to settings. The video quality is superb. Sorry about the annoying YouTube ad but there is only one so just click on the x to close.
