Each year between October & December up to three thousand Grey seals descend onto a RAF bombing range in North Lincolnshire to give birth and raise their pups in the safety of the shallow sand banks away from the harsh climate of the North Sea in winter. The colonies who usually inhabit the coastline of the UK are led by the pregnant females - cows who are swiftly followed by the male bulls,keen to copulate once the cows have produced their young.
