Just found this article I wrote sitting in my draft folder of the day I spent with the seals at Donna Nook in November 2011. The pictures in the video are the ones I took that day.

Just days after we had been to Donna Nook a high tide swept in and the seal colony suffered with the deaths of an estimated 100 pups drowning in the high waters, these were a small loss to the over all 2,000ish pups that are born at Donna Nook each year, but it was still very sad.

The best spectacle to see here in Lincolnshire England in Autumn/Winter from October to December is the Grey Seals and there new-born pups at Donna Nook beach.

My hubby took me on a date to see the seals :)

There are hundreds of cute grey seals stretched across the beach at donna nook, If your lucky you might even see a pup being born.

You can see seals in captivity at Skegness and Mablethorpe at the seal sanctuaries just down the road from Donna Nook all year road, but for me I prefer to see them in the wild, I look forward to seeing them every year in autumn at Donna Nook, there is nothing quiet like it, the sounds, the smells and the drama as they fight on the beach.

It’s not the babies that I go to see. I like the adults their much more interesting, if you’ve seen one baby you’ve seen them all, but the female adults are just as cute as their pups with some really beautiful mottled coats.

I love living by the sea, there is always something new with an ever-changing landscape to see, the other day we were walking across the beach and saw a bike buried in the sand, all you could see was a bent wheel and a pedal sticking out of the sand :)
