Grey Seals at Donna Nook, Lincs

The males were starting to gather up the beach, constantly battling and growling at one another, trying to woo the ladies.  

Aaaw - I Love You Mum xx 

Snoring ! 

A mid-week visit to Donna Nook after seeing the phalarope at Covenham. Easily got parked, not too many people which made it a pleasant visit. Always nice to see the seals and especially, the new born pups which make you go aaaw xx  Well over 500 pups with plenty more still to come.

Red-necked Phalarope, Covenham Reservoir, Lincs

I have sailed the world's oceans but watching this little bird pitching and tossing on the reservoir waves did make me feel slightly green ! 

Finally got round to a trip to Covenham for the phalarope.  It was blowing a gale, bitterly cold and the sky was as black a buggery, still a good day and while we were in that area we thought we would call for the seals aswell. How did we ever fit work in ?!
