Animals of the Brecks: Mammals, Reptiles & Amphibians
The Brecks form a unique area of inland East Anglia, straddling the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk. Recognised as one of the most important parts of the United Kingdom in terms of biodiversity, they encompass tracts of forest, heathland and arable farmland, threaded by river corridors. These diverse habitats support a range of fascinating wildlife.
Breckland hosts a broad range of mammal, reptile and amphibian species which, because of their often secretive nature, can be difficult to track down without some local knowledge. This guide provides that knowledge, together with other information that will help you find and watch these animals.
The Brecks Guides provide an affordable and informative introduction to the wildlife of the area. Pocket-sized, they are the ideal companions for a day out in the countryside.
