Cormorants heading inland to Norfolk

Sunday 27 Jan 13 at between 16:00-16:30 off Gorleston - on Sea, Norfolk we saw about 8 groups each of 50-100 cormorants fly in off the North Sea. They were flying low over the sea from the north, then flew up into rough Vs 0.25 miles south of Gorleston flying inland - possibly to Breydon Water. We have seen small groups before, but never this many. Were they just coming in to roost after a day fishing at sea?
