Matt Baker and Margherita Taylor visit the Somerleyton Estate in Suffolk to find out about an ambitious Wild East project aimed at turning East Anglia into a giant nature reserve. And it’s not just something that’s confined to the the 5,000-acre estate, as Steve Brown discovers. He is in the village of Risby, where residents are doing their bit no matter how small a patch they have. Margherita meets youngsters learning old rural skills to rescue Herringfleet smock mill, the last of its kind in this neck of the woods, and discovers why poo is key to otter communication. Meanwhile, Adam fears the worst for his winter barley as he starts harvesting.
