GREY SEALS

DONNA NOOK, LINCOLNSHIRE

A colony of grey seals visits Donna Nook on the North East Lincolnshire coast annually, to give birth to their young.  This stretch of coastline is protected by the wardens of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to ensure the least amount of disturbance from the general public.  Mike was lucky to get close enough with his telephoto lens, on a visit a few years back. Although the conditions were pretty bad, he managed to snap a variety of pictures.  Then during post-production it came as a wonderful surprise to find that all the seals had different, characterful faces and were exhibiting a real sense of love and affection towards one another as well as their newly born pups. They appeared to not only kiss as couples, they kissed their pups and used their flippers like arms to protect them.

Although the reserve has it's own nursery, sadly many of the pups perish due to them being born too close to the sea and their parents not being able to move them away from the incoming tide quickly enough.
