Off Patch: Monday club at Horsey and Hickling

After several amazing away days in the Broads, Brecks and N. Norfolk coast this year we thought we might share some of are off patch days.

With some of us (Steve!) keen to see the Grey Seal spectacle in East Norfolk we went off patch and headed across the county.  As we reached the top of the viewing point we were greeted by the sight off 100's of Grey Seals (including several impressive beach masters) spread as far as the eye could see north and south.  While Andy, Philip and I enjoyed the seals Steve found and sieved a dead Short-eared Owl he found resulting in what was probably several Catops species - imagine that label!

In the afternoon we headed to Stubbs Mill where eight Cranes past by and another two stood out on the grazing marsh and briefly displayed to one another!  Lots of Marsh Harriers graced the sky giving superb views with Brograve Mill in the background.
