The mammals’ pupping season typically begins in November, with the first fluffy faces caught on camera on the beach at Horsey. One seal could be seen rolling on its back, while another had what looked like a smile on its face as it lay on its stomach in the sand. Another seal was captured looking into the distance, while one appeared to be brushing up on its yoga as it held a pose.
