I had wanted to publish this blog over the new year, unfortunately I had a nasty bout of flu so I had to delay this post.
In November I took a trip that I had wanted to do for a few years. It was to Donna Nook, famous for grey seals. In November and December the grey seals come up onto the beach in huge numbers to breed. It is an impressive sight! The day was wonderful, the baby seals were adorable! What I wasn’t expecting was the noise of the seals, so loud you can hear from the car park. It is an eerie sound, yet somehow it is enchanting!
The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust do a fantastic job of counting and looking out for the safety of the seals, while also taking the time to talk with visitors about the seals and the local wildlife.
I took so many photos that I did have a hard time choosing which ones to share with you. There are a lot of cute baby seal photos, but as you will see, there was room for other wildlife to live amongst these magnificent marine mammals.
I am already looking forward to visiting again next year!
