Sorry, but the Wild Ken Hill team were right to shelve reintroduction of eagle

More news, no ads


The Autumnwatch team have been back at Wild Ken Hill at Snettisham.

The work that has been undertaken by the Buscall family to rewind part of their farmland is a tremendous boost to both nature and tourism in the area. A significant increase in amount and diversity of wildlife: flora and fauna is already resulting from the decision taken to stop using part of the farm for cultivation and growing.

Viewers of the BBC show were able to watch the mesmerising murmurations of thousands of Red Knot and the dramatic take-off and landings of the huge squadrons of pink-footed geese. Living here in West Norfolk, we are lucky that we can head over and see the real thing.


While all is harmony and delight as the team from Autumnwatch unearth more and more wonders at Wild Ken Hill, there is a low-level grumble that refuses to go away surrounding the estate’s decision not to reintroduce white-tailed sea eagles to the area.
