Cheerful Seal Pup Waves To The Camera At A Norfolk Beach

Seals come ashore to give birth from November through January!


Stunning images of a cheerful seal waving to a camera while sunbathing on a beach on the English Coast has touched the hearts of many animal lovers across the world.

Captured by Photographer Johan Siggeson of Zurrieq in Malta, the adorable moment occurred at the Horsey beach in Norfolk.

‘It was really an amazing experience spending time with the seals. Although, we had some horrible weather – the first days with rain, hail, and wind.’ Photographer Siggeson said.

The photos show the fluffy Common Seal stretching out on its back while also holding its flippers to its head in a mystified expression. After which, it then waved in the air and catches a glimpse at Photographer Siggeson who was standing inches away on the dunes.



‘Back to the babies once again. It’s easy to be drawn to these cuties when working on the beach in the United Kingdom. If you lack a bit of motivation, there’s always a cute pup around.’ Mr. Siggeson wrote on his Facebook page.

However, the Seal Pup appeared in an utter bliss unlike in recent months when three of the seal mammals were seen with their necks trapped in flying discs on the same beach. 473 in 2015 and 579 in 2018 plastic related incidents have been recorded by the RSPCA. Specifically, Seals come ashore to give birth from November through January, meaning winter can be quite a busy time for seal sighting.

Accordingly, the Blakeney Point Nature Reserve is home to both Common and Grey Seals. Having over 3,000 pups born yearly, the reserve is now recognized as the largest colony in England.
