A presentation of some of the ecosystems in Norfolk, England by a secondary school student.

NORFOLK ECOSYSTEMS

Norfolk has a variety of ecosystems, for example · The Fens · The Coast · The Broads · The Agricultural Land

NORFOLK FENS Around 56 species in Norfolk depend fully or partly on reed beds to survive (which we can see in the picture and are associated to The Fens) . The fens are grassy wetlands ( marshes ) with alkaline soil. They were drained about 200 years ago. They are crossed by ditches and rivers. They’re found mostly in the west of the county. This is what they look like today.

WILDLIFE OF THE FENS This is a barn owl, which feed on field mice like this one. This is an otter, which lives in the rivers and feeds when it can on fish and eels like the one below.

NORFOLK COAST The North sea is found in the north and the east of Norfolk. The beaches are long and are either sandy or made up of pebbles (small stones). There are sand dunes between the beach and the marshes. There are marron grass that hold the sand firmly to the ground due to their long root system. There are many differente species of fish and seabirds, of wich most are just stopping for a rest in their migrational route. We can also find a few mammals.
