Three locations in Norfolk have been named by experts as their favourite places in the UK for wildlife, as part of a BBC poll.

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, BBC Wildlife magazine asked experts to choose their most loved areas. The public now has a chance to vote for their favourite.

Ajay Tegala, a countryside ranger, selected Blakeney Point, saying it "offers the remoteness and solitude I often crave".

He added: "As well as a dramatic landscape, space to think, and miles to explore, it's the wildlife that makes this National Trust National Nature Reserve so magnificent".

The Broads are a much-loved wildlife hotspot and the Chet, a tributary of the Yare, was included on the list.

Author Simon Barnes chose it for the "marsh harriers sky dancing overhead; the vivid blue flashes of kingfishers" and the "otters at play in the water".

The final location, Foxley Wood, near Reepham, was selected by Patrick Barkham, a writer, for its quietness and the "magic within".

You can vote for your favourite Norfolk wildlife area before the deadline on March 10.
