Thinking of visiting the Seals

Lincs Wildlife Trust - Donna Nook Grey Seal Colony - For much of the year grey seals at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trusts̢۪ Donna Nook National Nature Reserve are at sea or hauled out on distant sandbanks. Every November and December, the seals give birth to their pups near the sand dunes: a wildlife spectacle which attracts visitors from across the UK. With over 1300 pups born annually and tens of thousands of visitors, management is required and this is achieved thanks to the fantastic support of a team of volunteer wardens and the staff of RAF Donna Nook. Check out the LWT site for full details -

Warning over 'terrible' northern seabird breeding

Seabird breeding has been "terrible" in some northerly areas such as Orkney and Shetland, RSPB Scotland has warned.

The 700 Arctic terns present at the start of the breeding season on the Shetland island of Mousa failed to produce a single chick.

The organisation said the situation was "similarly miserable" on Orkney.

The RSPB's Doug Gilbert said: "The terrible season for critical colonies in the far north warns us that seabird populations remain in real danger."

Out of Africa - Investigating the declines of our migrant birds . Our summer migrant birds face incredible challenges in their daily lives but none more so than their annual journeys to and from Africa. To escape the British winter, migrant birds fly thousands of miles to reach warmer climates, returning again in spring. However numbers of our summer migrants, such as the Cuckoo and Turtle Dove, are declining and we don't know why.It is critical for the future of our summer migrants that our research takes place now. To carry out the planned work, the BTO need funds. If you are able to support them, you can do so in the following this link -
