The Horsey area can be very productive, Cranes can be seen at anytime of the year. A flock of several thousand Pink Footed Geese is usually present in the winter, with the odd Barnacle, 'Tundra' Bean or something rarer in amongst them. Walking North or south from the National trust car park at Horey corner can be good in spring or autumn when migrants and vagrants can turn up in the bushes.

Also of interest is the large Grey Seal colony which haul up on the beach to pup in late November. There are viewing platforms along the top of the dunes where you can view the seals, you are strongly advised to stay off the beach at this time to avoid disturbing hte animals.
