One cold and windy day.

I made the long drive, with my wife and little one, out to Donna Nook in North Lincolnshire. It’s been a few years since I’ve been there and this experience was very different.

The crowds were here this time where as last time it involved a trek out on the mud this time there was a viewing area, which I suppose is a good thing as it keeps the public away from the seals.

We managed to get close to the seals and take some shots. The new 100–400mm lens has made a big difference over the old Tamron 28–300 I used last time.

We managed to witness some good fights and a bit of Seal loving as well.

All in all a good day out with the camera and a great first experience of wildlife photography for my daughter. Next week I’m off out to the peaks for mountain hare on a course. Hoping I can learn some new skills to up my game for next years Zambia trip.
