Visiting the Seals at Donna Nook

What a privilege to live so close to ‘Donna Nook’, Donna Nook is one of the most accessible sites for seeing the Grey Atlantic seals at a time of breeding in the UK. Elsewhere they either gather on beaches but in far away places like the Scottish islands, or they are out to sea in rocky outcrops. In Lincolnshire it is a short ride from near my home town Grimsby to the beach and there they are, in late autumn (October) and early winter (December)

Do not underestimate the size of the seal colony at Donna Nook and its importance to wildlife watchers around UK and Europe.

The Seals at Donna Nook are VERY VERY close to the shore line, it really is an experience that any lover of wildlife should really experience, the real life Frozen Planet.

The seals can be photographed quite easily, as you can see from my photographs all taken on the i-phone 3GS

The seals attract over 40,000 visitors to the Lincolnshire coast from end October to end of December every year and I highly recommend that everyone should visit.
