Below is a snippet from Nigel’s blog.
Water is a significant feature within the county of Norfolk, The Broads National Park – Britains largest protected wetland is rich in biodiversity and a haven for wildlife, the 90 miles of wave lapped coastline (93 at low tide), are immensely popular attracting vast numbers of visitors throughout the year. Within the landscape many picturesque streams drain the county, where gravity gently moves the slowly flowing water through meadows and cattle grazed marshes, slipping beside bankside willows to the North Sea.
Norfolk has several chalk streams and two of these, the Wensum and Nar, are Sites of Special Scientific Interest, designated areas of European and International biodiversity importance, where the conservation strategy is directed at halting biodiversity decline and designed to increase the health of the existing riparian ecosystem.
