My first trip to the seal colony at the Donna Nook Nature Reserve in Lincolnshire. Heading over on Boxing Day 2016, I arrived around lunchtime to a very clear, very still, very cold beach with few other spectators. As it was the end of the season, there weren’t as many seals and seal pups around as there had been a month before, but the animals I did see were stunning.

In November 2018 I would get another chance to visit.
