Norfolk Wildlife Trust Breckland Local Group (Evening of talks)

Last evening (15th June) the newly re-formed NWT Breckland Local Group held an evening of talks at the Watton Christian Community Centre.  This was the first event by the newly formed group, whose Chairman, John Davies, must be congratulated for on getting the group up and running again.
Matt Blissett (NWT Reserves Manager) gave an excellent talk and presentation on the Trust's reserves and work in Breckland.  Matt has only been in the Brecks since February 2016, however, his knowledge and enthusiasm of Breckland accrued within this time was outstanding.
Sam Neal (Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service) gave a talk and presentation on the work of Norfolk's environmental record centre.  The aim of his talk was to show how and what to record, and to encourage people to record species and habitats.
I was totally impressed by the number of people who attended the talk, I am not sure how many came, it must have exceeded 40, and extra chairs had to be provided.  To all who attended these talks I extend a very big THANK YOU.
