Lazy seal trippin

So it's been a busy few weeks since I got back. This week my children are on school holiday, so I am too. Today we took a boat trip to Blakeney Point. After legging it out there many times, it was interesting to see and reach the point from a different perspective. Seal numbers were low, typical for this time of year. Still good fun watching both species (grey and common), in the water and on the beach. And it's always nice to be on the water.

Life is good

No birds of note. Breeding terns, gulls and few shorebirds. The boat passed perhaps a bit too close to the tern colony.

Common Terns

Little Terns

No orange bills among the Sandwich Terns

We had half an hour on the point. I deserted my family and ran to the plantation for a quick look. Nothing, as expected. Later in the afternoon there were some thuderstorms but no news came out of the point as a result.
