Every November and December, the seals give birth to their pups near the sand dunes, which is considered a wildlife haven and attracts visitors from across the UK.

At the moment the pup, born on Monday, October 24, is not very visible from the path and there are only a few adult seals present on the sand dunes.

A total number of 1,892 pups were born at Donna Nook last year, the first being born on October 25.
