Lincolnshire Seal in the Surf
Lincolnshire Seal in the Surf. Image taken during my 2018 seal photography workshops. This image was taken as we watched the seals playing and socialising in the surf. Images like this are all about timing and here I was lucky to catch the wave cresting over the seals head, making the spray look like hair!
Lincolnshire Seal in the Surf – About Grey Seals
For much of the year grey seals are out at sea or hauled out on far away sandbanks. 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.
