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.
Climatic and soil conditions in the Brecks are such that a particularly notable assemblage of plants is found locally. Several species have their British headquarters here, while for others it is their only known location in the whole country. This handy guide will help you identify the special plants of the area, explaining how to distinguish them from more familiar species and directing you to the best places and times of year at which to find them.
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.
