WHY SIR DAVID LOVES CLEY MARSHES
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.
