From next year, nest cameras put in place by the Wings over the Brecks project will allow a close-up look at elusive species including the stone curlew, woodlark, goshawk, hobby and nightjar.

The results will be live streamed from High Lodge and Weeting Heath from next year, with a series of events and activities planned in the run up. There will also be roaming displays of the footage run by the RSPB in Thetford and Brandon.

The project is being delivered by the RSPB as part of the Breaking New Ground scheme, which received £2.2m from the Heritage Lottery Fund earlier this year for landscape and heritage initiatives.

Sammy Fraser, RSPB Brecks Community Engagement Officer, said: “The project will involve exciting events for everyone to get involved in and directly experience the Brecks landscape and its fantastic wildlife and heritage. As someone who is passionate about the Brecks I can’t wait to watch the project grow.”

The RSPB is also keen for volunteers to be involved in the project in explaining the footage and assisting with the running of events.

Volunteers will be based at High Lodge and training is required. Contact the RSPB by emailing thebrecks@rspb.org.uk or calling 01842 753732.
