Today our destination was Blackney Point NNR, a long spit of land on the North Norfolk Coast. Access to the reserve is heavily restricted during the breeding season so we had arranged to be taken out by boat to see the Seals (Common and Grey) which gather at the point at high tide.

It was a fantastic experience to get so close to the seals, especially those that were swimming around the boat.
