Seal season at Donna Nook under review

Visitors who flock to see the seal spectacle at Donna Nook every year could be left disappointed as arrangements for the season are under review in the light of Covid-19.

Thousands of visitors from all over the UK flock to the area every November and December when grey seals visit the coastline to give birth to their pups near the sand dunes.

However Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust has announced that if they are able to go ahead with the opening this year, a booking system is highly likely to be in place.

A spokesperson said: “We are currently in discussions with various authorities working out the logistics of the seal season at Donna Nook. If we are able to go ahead, it will almost certainly mean a booking system.

“We will make an announcement on the main Donna Nook page as soon as possible.”

Donna Nook covers more than 10km (6.25 miles) of coastline between Grainthorpe Haven in the north and Saltfleet in the south where it borders the Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe National Nature Reserve.

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is a charity that manages almost 100 of the best sites for wildlife in Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. Its work is helping to secure the future of many important habitats and species, which might otherwise be lost.

It is appealing for people to support it with donations due to the effects of coronavirus.

A spokesperson said: “With visitor centres temporarily closed and events cancelled, vital funding has disappeared but the crisis facing nature hasn’t. Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is continuing to fight for nature but can only do so with your support.
