Grey Seal Bull In A Sandstorm
Grey seal bull on the sand banks of the Lincolnshire coastline during a sandstorm. Grey seal bulls can grow to anything between 2.5–3.3 m long and weigh up to 310 kg. Although they look slow and cumbersome lying on the sand, once they start moving they’re surprisingly fast. You DO NOT want to get in the way of a charging bull!
For much of the year grey seals are out at sea or hauled out on far away sandbanks, but from October to December the seals come ashore to give birth to their pups on the sand dunes of Donna Nook. Donna Nook is home to one the largest and most accessible grey seal colonies in the UK. There are about 3,000 Grey Seals along the coastline, and 900+ pups are born each year. The area is actually owned by the MOD (Ministry of Defence) as a bombing range, but surprisingly the seals seem relatively undisturbed by the military activity and return here year after year.
