Donna Nook Seals

This blog is intended to be about plants but browsers should excuse today's detour to the Lincolnshire Coast and a salt marsh on which breed hundreds of grey seals on the other side of a wire fence, seconds from the Stonebridge car park. We visited the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's site yesterday. The images from Donna Nook say it all. 


  1. What cute little sausages, hard to imagine them swimming gracefully through the ocean waters!

  2. Cute indeed. We saw a mother give birth to a pup ten feet away from us. Then there was another mother attempting to suckle her pup for the first time, patting (or maybe beating) the youngster with her flipper, rolling round and over the babe, and then giving up and going to sleep. There were pups in profusion all over the marsh.
