Day 4 – 30 days Wild – Beach clean

Disposable lighters, plastic bottles, baby dummies, balloons, coffee cups and micro plastics were all amongst the items my family and I picked up from Horsey beach in Norfolk.

It was great to see that quite a few other people were doing the same thing, but what would be better is if people didn’t drop the rubbish in the first place.

It was heartbreaking to sit and watch this seal playing with a pair of sunglasses.

  1. Well done for cleaning the beach but Oh dear that poor seal and what we humans have done.

    • We found a seal with rope around its neck, which we reported. The local seal group rescued it the following day and it is now recovering with the RSPCA. I’m going to write a separate blog about it in a couple of days when I have some more feed back on how the seal is doing.

  2. Good for you and your family! I hate seeing what is picked up on our beaches here on the Texas coast. A seal with sunglasses!
