is a fantastically rich nature reserve, largely due to its great variety of habitats.
Holkham is special for wildlife because of the great mix of habitats from
marshes, dunes and sand spits to wind exposed tide lines, creeks, and shaded pinewoods.
We'll take you to some of our our diverse country
estates - places you can go to see some fantastic wildlife spectacles.
- Our parks offer amazing opportunities for
wildlife watching. Why not take a few tips from the TV team? Try your hand at
bird watching or go on a garden safari.
