Whistlestop tour of Broads National Park

The Golden Orioles class learnt lots today after our experiences in the Broads National Park! After finding out about how grazing marshland is managed today by the use of electric pumps, we climbed up Thurne Mill to see the mechanisms inside a windpump. We then soaked in the Broads landscape during our River Bure cruise, and spotted a range of birds, including herons and several species of geese. Our day ended at How Hill, finding numerous invertebrates whilst dyke-dipping. Our next step will be considering how the Broads can continue to create an environment that is suited to the local wildlife, but at the same time can allow people to enjoy the area.
