Donna Nook

Took Sam to see the Grey Seals giving birth to their pups on the RAF Donna Nook bombing range on the Lincolnshire coast. I've never seen seals so accepting of humans, and there are more than a thousand youngsters already. Another month and they'll all be gone to sea.
It was almost dark but the Canon G11 coped at ISO1600 in a colourless landscape.
Todays count by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust was 1082 seal pups, 975 cows and 331 bulls.
