Norfolk Broads:the Fall and Rise of a Great Swamp

The Norfolk Broads is one of the last fragments of a vast swamp where ancient Britons hunted wildfowl and fished for perch and giant pike. Over the centuries most of the marsh and its wildlife were destroyed. The swamp is now recovering, and spectacular birds like avocets, marsh harriers, and cranes are back. Can the Broads be restored or will they be destroyed by rising sea levels?
