RAF Donna Nook is an International range for Air forces to hone their skills but during October, November & December weaponry is silenced!. The mournful moans of pups and their mums, eager to mate bulls fighting for hierarchy, gulls,crows & raptors picking away at the 1000+ placentas.
In this all too brief moment of brightness on an otherwise dull November day, you can see a bull seal (foreground right) approaching the smaller cow hoping she will be receptive. The little white pups look on, sleeping and feeding for just 3 weeks before being left to fend for themselves.
