Hickling Broad raptor watch point

We stopped for lunch just outside Hickling at Waxham and watched at least a thousand Pink Footed Geese coming in to land in a field. We then stood at the raptor watch point for a couple of hours until dark. We didn't see any cranes but saw about 50 Marsh Harrier, a ringtail Hen Harrier, Short/Long Eared Owl, Barn Owl and two Swallows. We heard a Tawny Owl at Hickling and when we arrived home.
