Donna Nook - Seals 2015

November 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Every year during November and December, Donna Nook Nature Reserve in Lincolnshire is home to Seal Cows, Seal Bulls and their new born Pups. Every year I like to visit Donna Nook to capture their visit to the dunes and to also watch these beautiful mammals. I was lucky enough in 2014 to witness a Seal Cow called Rope Neck give birth to her pup. Link to that video is here

My first visit on Tuesday 10th November was in the early afternoon and I was lucky with the weather to have a break in the clouds and have some sun. The weather wasn't too kind on my second visit on Saturday 14th November. Clouds and more clouds. Even thou it was cloudy I still managed to come away with a few photos.

For anyone was hasn't been to Donna Nook and would like too, or is planning a visit I recommend getting there early. There is a main free car park and that does get full very quickly. I arrived on Saturday morning around 8.30 am and the car park was a 1/4 full. By the time I left which was just after 9.30 am the car park was full with people looking for spaces. They do offer an over flow car park which is sign posted, but that is £2 per car. For anyone with dogs, please note "No DOGS allowed", and you will be asked to leave by a member of staff if you ignore these signs.
