Norfolk Info Needed

This weekend, I am staying just North of Norwich. I have a free day on Sunday and would be keen to vist some local sites. I am aware of all the 'big' sites on the coast, so, can anyone suggest some location north of Norwich?

Am I too early for Hairy Dragonfly? THis would be one thing I would be really keen to see?

upton fen NWT is about 10 miles east of Norwich, so not exactly north, but its a good site for the dragonflies.

I briefly saw one single dragonfly there about a week ago but it was so brief i could not identify it. certainly a dragonfly as opposed to one of the damselfies though

I got good views of Hairy Dragonfly at How Hill reserve (think I heard that Norfolk Wildlife Trust are now involved here?) last year - lovely little spot, well worth a visit.
