Quintessentially British: Baby Seal Colony


Oh hey there!

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Sausej.

Apologies for not posting this week - I've been rather busy with a trip for work and a trip to York. In between I headed with some friends to see the cuteness that is baby grey seals at the colony in Donna Nook, Lincolnshire. Each year hundreds of pups are born and you can go (for free!!!) to see them. 


It's actually ridiculous how close you can get. You can see the fence above ^^ and the babies just flailing about on the other side. All you need to bring is some money to park, a camera and some snacks.



The seals are free to come and go as they please, the humans are fenced in rather than the seals which I love. 

Of course, it's not just the babies that are cute - the adults are sweet looking too.



Prepare yourself for seal-spam...





There are genuinely hundreds! So many babies to see. 




Some are a little more active while the others are a little bit... 'paint me like one of your french girls' hahaha...





If you're thinking of going - make it quick. The babies are only round til the end of December. Plus at the moment there is a jet black baby which is rare in the grey seal colony and amazing to see.



My only other advice would be to get there after 2 pm at the earliest. I go every year and usually its us, about 35 people and a lot of seal babies but this year there were hundreds of people until about 2pm and then there was no body. Also definitely take snacks and drinks. The place has nothing apart from the seals, and I mean it haha - there were people selling hats outside the back of their van and cabbages and stuff - go for the seals and then go hunt out fish and chips in the village,
