Donna Nook

Went over to Donna Nook on the North Lincs coast. It’s seal time and there are pups everywhere! I’m told 500 born so far! It’s the first time I’d been there. If you intend visiting it’s a busy place, loads of people in the fenced area. A lens in the 50-100 region is fine for the close seals, but 300mm is needed for the more isolated seals. The sun is low at this time of year so the fence casts shadows on the close ones, you also get shadows of anyone walking past so keep an eye out. Ask your partner friend to shadow a seal if you don’t want fence patterns. A flash would be useful too on half power to fill in the harsh low lever sun.
