Donna Nook

This place takes its name from a ship once wrecked on its desolate shore. When the tide recedes the sea disappears from view beyond the muddy flats and banks of sand. More..

Description
"Grey Seal pup At Donna Nook"

Britain's population of grey seals is considered to be of international conservation importance. Donna Nook is home to some 3000 Grey seals at certain times of the year and in 2008 more than 1000 pups were born here. For most of the year the Grey seals disperse out to sea or haul out around the coast. However from October - December the seals come to breed near the dunes at Donna Nook. Donna Nook is owned by the MOD as a bombing range. The seals seem remarkably undisturbed by the planes. The reserve covers more than 10 km (6.25 miles) of coastline.
