Seals make a splash on Horsey and Waxham beaches

Seals have been out in force delighting onlookers on one Norfolk beach - and a wonderfully different perspective of the event was caught by aerial photographer Mike Page.
Dozens upon dozens of the aquatic mammals piled onto Horsey beach over the weekend and Mr Page managed to capture a striking image while flying over the site.
With this bird's eye view, it almost looks as though the beach-goers were not the only ones admiring another species.
While the people gaze at the spectacle in front of them, it appears the seals were enjoying a spot of people-watching at the same time.
The scene is reminiscent of Norfolk artist Brian Lewis's painting 'Seal Trips', in which boats full of the animals watch human sunbathers on a beach.

However, there was not quite as much fun to be had by another seal, which found itself injured and alone on another of the county's beaches.
IWitness photographer Paula Sparkes spotted the distressed creature on Waxham beach, snapping it with a 600mm lense from a safe distance away.
