Donna Nook seal colony

Donna Nook, in North East Lincolnshire, is a fantastic place to see grey seals when they having their pups in November, December, and early January. You can get close to the seals, which are just on the other side of a low fence - and as long as you follow the guidelines, the seals are relaxed about human presence.
