Re: Horsey Gap seals

To me sixteen snaps of one subject in one post is just a bit too much. There are a few very good ones in there but also some not so good, ie the soft ones. Just an opinion FWIW. Regards IW.

Re: Horsey Gap seals

Some beautiful shots there.
Yesterday I was editing my Horsey Seals shots, taken at the end of last year. I'll put some up in my own thread soon.


The EXIF says you took these on Tuesday 15th January using the 40-150 PRO and 300 PRO but it looks like you were on the beach - have they opened it up again now?

When you walk down the dunes away from the car park, the first mile or so you are limited to being on top of the dunes, as you get towards the flood relief drain, you can get down to beach level but remaining on/within the dunes area.

The pups were quite close to the dunes in places, and a couple asleep in the dunes, so we kept away there, but where they were at the waterline I was happy to get down to their level.

Going by the footprints on the beach there had been quite a lot of people (and dogs!) walking along the beach past the car park area and along past all the seals. (hopefully at a lower tide than when we got there!)

Re: Horsey Gap seals

OK I don't think we've been further than the second viewing area just past the Friends' shipping container and the track to The Nelson.
The day we went was bitter and very windy so we didn't venture beyond the first viewing area.

There were a couple of pups lounging around there so I was able to get fairly close without encroaching - there was warden making sure we were a safe distance.


I can't imagine what a big bull would do to a dog it felt was in his territory - they're massive and move surprisingly quickly!

Re: Horsey Gap seals

A nice selection of shots. In the past we have parked at Winterton car park by the cafe and walked north across the dunes. After a while there is a ramp on the right hand side providing access to the beach and we found lots of seals there. We walked past them, giving them as much room as possible, and returned to the cafe. The bulls are rather intimidating, even at a considerable distance.

I was swapping between the 300f4 and the 40-150f2.8 while leaving the MC14 in place.

Thoroughly enjoyable few hours watching them.

Which reminds me...

This is a reasonable method of ensuring the sensor stays clean, why they don't close the shutter when the lens release button is pressed is beyond me... (the camera knows the button is pressed as it switches off a few things) re-open with a press of the shutter release or something....

Re: Horsey Gap seals

Some good pics there. When I visited in Sept I took a few pics and after getting home and looking through them all spotted one with a frizbe round its neck. I emailed Norfolk Wildlife Trust with the pic attached, and they told me to contact the friends of Horsey Seals which I did and attached the same picture. They said they would try and find it which is very difficult and lo and behold this week I received an email telling me they had caught it and it was being cared for and under recovery at an RSPCA centre in Norfolk, so a happy ending for a change....my brother told me that it featured on the local ITV news as well, so were are not just photographers !!
