Seals at Donna Nook

From early November to early January, grey seals come ashore at Donna Nook near North Somercotes to give birth, mate and then return to the sea again. During the season, wardens from the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust protect the seals and provide information for visitors.

Sutton-on-Sea Beach

Our beach is empty for most of the year, and often looks at it's best at sunrise, when walking the dog.

Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes NNR

We walk here most mornings with Maylee - the area is managed by Natural England and the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
The dunes began forming in the 13th century, and the same processes of wind and tidal action continues dune formation on the site today. The dunes support a variety of flowers and grasses while saltmarsh and freshwater marsh areas are home to a wide variety of insects, amphibians, birds and mammals.
