Donna Nook National Nature Reserve

Donna Nook Nature Reserve

Donna Nook National Nature Reserve is only a short drive away from North East Lincolnshire.

The nature reserve is managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

Here you will find 10km stretch of coastline between Grainthorpe Haven in the north and Saltfleet in the south.

Visitors should be aware that the Ministry of Defence still maintains part of the area as a bombing target range and under no circumstances should anyone enter the bombing area when red flags are flying. However, most of the dune area is accessible at all times.

Year after year, each winter (typically November and December) you will see hundreds of grey seals making their home in the saltmarsh to give birth to their pups; a wildlife spectacle which attracts many visitors from all over the UK.
