Last December I visited Donna Nook on the East coast of England. Every winter a huge population of grey seals visit the beach to give birth to pups. The location is an RAF bombing range which ironically keeps the beach safe and undisturbed; the RAF do not actually bomb when the seals are there.

All being well I will be visiting this location again this winter with some of the guys from rb if we can get time off work together.
