Donna Nook in Lincolnshire is one of the most accessible sites in the UK for seeing the Atlantic Grey Seals at breeding time.
The best time to see the seals is during November and December as this is the time the pups are born. The pups put on weight very quickly, trebling their birth weight in around three weeks on the mothers fat rich milk
The coast at Donna Nook is managed for wildlife by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and seal wardens are on hand during the time the seals are there keeping an eye on the seals welfare and providing information for the large number of visitors that flock to see the seals every year.
Please respect the seals and do not disturb them. The seals come very close to the fenced area where excellent views can be had. Please do not attempt to touch the seals. The scent of a human on a pup can be enough to cause the mother to abandon the pup and even small cute looking pups can give a nasty bite.
