A photographer who has spent 40 years taking aerial pictures of the Anglia region says he's never seen so many seals on a sand bank off Great Yarmouth.

There are up to 4,000 of them according to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

Mike Page says there's a huge population of cormorants on Scroby Sands too, making the area, a mile and a half out to sea, a real wildlife haven.
