This week’s ‘Photography Friday’ saw Rachel and I visit Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire coast to see the Grey Seals (Halichoerus grypus) that breed (and give birth to their pups) there every year between October and December.
The area is a salt marsh, used by the Royal Air Force as a bombing range but it is also home to a staggering 30% of the worldwide Grey Seal population!
The public viewing area is managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and the volunteer wardens do a fantastic job of keeping both seals and visitors safe, the above image was captured from well behind the fencing that separates the two!
