15th of July: Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists

This weekend the Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists have been recording beetles, lichens and vascular plants on the point. Scientific recording of species began here in Victorian times. These trips can be productive and enable species never before recorded to be discovered. Four years ago, the first Lesser Stag Beetle was found on the point, the first one to be found in Norfolk for several decades. This year another new beetle was discovered, it is currently still being verified.

Our latest low tide seal count (14th of July) recorded 298 Common and 825 Grey Seals on the West Sands.

In other news, it seems we have 56 eggs between us... so it looks like omlette for dinner.
