Leg­endary wildlife broad­caster Sir David At­ten­bor­ough says that Cley Marshes is one of the “great­est places in Bri­tain” to see wildlife.

He told a na­tional news­pa­per that the Nor­folk Wildlife Trust, the first in this coun­try, was founded in 1926 – the year he was born. “Twelve friends pro­duced the money to pro­tect this coast, at a time when nat­u­ral his­tory was re­garded as some­thing slightly odd. It is one of the great places in Bri­tain to see wildlife

“To­day these trusts are a na­tional move­ment, and it’s heart­en­ing to know that there’s not a square yard of this coun­try that doesn’t have a trust car­ing for it to some de­gree. As the world warms, there will be ex­treme things hap­pen­ing to this coast, and we need peo­ple who un­der­stand it and will look af­ter it – not just for our­selves, but for the won­der­ful crea­tures that live on it,” he told The Daily Tele­graph.

We think, Sir David, there are plenty of peo­ple in Nor­folk who agree with you.
