30 Days Wild – Day 17: Sock Seal and Listening to Birds

Today Squiggle made a seal from a creative kit we bought from a small company called Sock Creatures (see website www.sock-creatures.co.uk )

Seals are one of our very favourite animals and visiting the seals at Donna Nook during pupping season is one of our most memorable ever days out. See my previous blog post about that wonderful experience here or check out Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust website for more information.

Squiggle also had the inspiration of designing and making her own monkey too…

In the early evening, I sat outside silently and listened to the birds singing. I tried to get a sound recording but it didn’t pick up much! It was beautiful to listen to though, and interesting to hear the variety of birds.

Donna Nook

Amazing day out yesterday, seal watching at Donna Nook in Lincolnshire. Stunning place to visit. Seals arrive at the beach around beginning of November to birth and mate then go again by the end of December. It is an absolute privilege to watch these fascinating animals in their natural environment during this time. The photos, aside from being taken on a camera phone 😉 lol, do not do the incredible real-life experience justice in the slightest. But here they are anyway…
