Conservation organisers and individuals are in a race against time to discover the special wildlife on North Norfolk’s coast.

A partnership of nature conservation teams will come together on the weekend of July 22/23 to hold a BioBlitz to identify and record as many species as possible over a 24-hour period.

They will be surveying the stretch of coast from Holme-Next-The-Sea to Salthouse, and they need the public’s help.

Rachael Wright, Cley community education officer, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, said: “We’re encouraging people to join us and get involved with identifying plants and animals in fun activities along the coast that will require absolutely no prior knowledge. “Together with the help of nature experts and volunteers we hope to discover as many species as possible.”
