We took along badge making and colouring in, to add to the nest box making, nature trail and lucky dip. The first Sunday was misleadingly quiet, as people whizzed by on their way to Go Ape and the play park. So when we popped over on Tuesday, thinking we might not be needed, we were susprised to see a queue of families already lined up to make nest boxes! The whole week was a great success, with bird ringing added to the mix on Thursday with the BTO.
We had a great opportunity to promote the scheme, whilst highlighting the Wings Over TheBrecks project. Footage taken from nest cameras last year, is on display in the High Lodge café now.
There will be more Wild Activities throughout year. Click on the links below for more details.
It looks set to be an exciting year for the Wings Over The Brecks project. Last summer we were introduced to some cute Hobby Chicks; this year we hope to get a glimpse into the secret lives of other Brecks species. Nest cameras, put in place by specially trained volunteers, will reveal the nests and behaviour of specialist species such as nightjar, goshawk and stone-curlew.
Live video footage will be shown at the Forestry Commission’s High Lodge, Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Weeting Heath and at roaming displays run by the RSPB in Thetford and Brandon.
This is where you can help! The project needs enthusiastic people to bring this footage to life. You can help for a day or a couple of hours, it’s up to you!
What’s in it for you?
Do I have the skills?
You don’t need to be an expert or have done any of these things before. We’re looking for enthusiastic and passionate local people to get stuck in!

This project is being delivered in partnership by The Forestry Commission, RSPB and Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
