Up Close With Fluffy White Seal Pups – England’s East Coast

Did you know that there are beaches in England where you can get up close with over 1600 fluffy white seal pups? There are 4 thriving Grey Seal pupping colonies on England’s East Coast: Donna Nook in Lincolnshire, the Farne Islands off Northumberland and Blakeney and Horsey colonies in Norfolk. I visited Donna Nook in late November, just as pup numbers were reaching their peak.   Seals, seals, as far as the eye can see. Brownish-grey adults laying on the sand intermingled with the bright white fur of newborn pups. Some pups had even opted to snooze right up against the double fence that separates seals and visitors by only half a metre. Close enough to touch – not...

Chapel St Leonards and Six Marshes Beach Walk, Lincolnshire

A part of unspoiled east coast, the fresh air and peaceful location combined with soft sandy beaches to wander and recharge the batteries, Chapel six marches, is my favourite Lincolnshire beach. Close to the Lincolnshire Wolds, this area is a haven for wildlife. Chapel Point, which is just a mile from the centre of the village is a favourite spot for birdwatches too, great for sightings of migrant birds such as the Mediterranean gull and occasionally a chance of spotting seals, I know this first hand, many years ago, and with the assistance of the R.S.P.C.A we rescued a...

Lincoln – A Grand Jewel of Britain

I have been lucky enough over the last couple of days to explore and take in some of the great things to see and do in Lincolnshire. A gorgeous county situated in the East Midlands of England, where to start? Well of course Lincoln, the capital city. The history hits you as soon as you enter through the old city walls and into the old town with wonderfully kept architecture. Dwarfing all is the magnificent Cathedral. A masterpiece of architecture. The sheer size of Lincoln Cathedral is a sight to behold. Consecrated in 1092 after William the Conqueror had...
