This little seal pup had become seperated from his mum – hence the sad and worried look. She did find him and all was well.

Taken on a trip to Donna Nook, UK with fellow red bubbler Elaine123. The Donna Nook Grey Seal Colony is Managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve.

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 there.

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.
