This story is over

Hundreds of seal pups can be found at this time of year at Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire coast.

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.

The first pup was born this year on Monday, October 24 and to date, there are 1,878 pups currently making a home at Donna Nook.

Last year, total number of 1,892 pups were born at Donna Nook.

Seal numbers are now starting to drop this week as animals begin to make their way back to the sea, so don’t miss your chance to visit the baby seals!
