Blakeney Seals and Birds

Blakeney Seals and Birds

Enjoy a boat trip to get up close with the seals and birds, with free time in Holt for lunch

Arrive in Holt for lunch at your leisure then make our way to Morston Quay for a boat trip to Blakeney Point.

 

Blakeney Point is a long shingle spit providing shelter to a large tidal area. Silt and sand deposit have built up as large areas of salt marsh providing a wide range of coastal and inter-tidal habitat. The whole area is forever changing due to the influences of tides and storms, particularly in winter.

Shingle banks, margins between shingle, sand and mud provide a wide range of plant habitat, where a number of specialist plant species can be found such as Sea Campion, Sea Lavender, Sea Beet as well as some rarer species. The area is hugely important for breeding and over-wintering birds. In summer large Tern colonies (Little, Common, Sandwich and Artic terns) inhabit nesting areas on the point. In winter a small coastal strip of Norfolk is home to huge flocks of Greylag, Brent and Pink Foot geese. Ringed Plover, Shelduck, Oystercatchers, Avocets and Little Egret are among some of the large numbers of bird species which you may see. Blakeney Point also provides a haul out area and breeding ground for Grey and Common seals.

 

The seal colony at Blakeney Point has between 500 to 800 seals which stay there all year round. The grey seals have their pups during November and December and the common seals in July and August. The seals move up with the incoming tide on to the end of Blakeney Point where we you are able to see them at very close quarters from the boat.
