A short break in Potter Heigham and whilst not a birding holiday it was so good to be near the coast. One of the key plans was to visit Horsey to see the seals, but also managed to spend some time on the coast at Walcott, Sea Palling and Waxham. Although distant there were a few young Gannets flying past, a skein of Brent Geese and three Red Throated Divers. I managed to get a shot of a lone Knot flying past.
One Wader that can always be relied on to give goods is the Turnstone. I managed to get some shots with an attractive background.
At Horsey Gap a gentleman informed us there were around 40 Seals showing, but when we got there there were around 80 to 100 in the sea and on the beach. An amazing sight and in the next few weeks they will start pupping. Having a long lens meant I could take pictures from long range to ensure they were not disturbed.
An amazing experience, and a short video to finish with.
