Seal of Approval: The Seals of Donna Nook


So delighted to see my recommendation on ‘Donna Nook’ used on the ‘Visit Britain Super Blog’ Seal of Approval: Visit Britain like a local.

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 taken in last seal season (November)

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 in the next seal breeding season.

  1. I wasn’t aware that you could get so close to seals. I usually have to use the telephoto on my compact camera to capture them on the coast of Wales and Scotland. To capture them on an iPhone is amazing.
    I’m long overdue for a return visit to the North East Coast this post is an inspiration.
