Crumbling Coastlines

A lot of stories at the moment related to the Norfolk coast, and its possible future.
This followed a report, and comments by Lord Smith of the Environment Agency
This was featured on the BBC NEWS, and there was also an excellent discussion on the GUARDIAN's WEBSITE.

The PRUNED blog had a very interesting post, which included some of Andrew Stacey's wonderfully sharp images of Happisburgh. Well worth reading - thanks to Noel Jenkins for the tipoff there.

Check out this DEFRA website for suggestions on adapting to climate change. Also check out the STAND UP TO CLIMATE CHANGE website.

Today's Eastern Daily Press had a front page which featured Happisburgh. Head over to site to capture the articles quick.

Also got a letter today from the RSPB. There are 2 RSPB reserves within 10 minutes or so of where I live: Snettisham and Titchwell. The letter was to tell me about the Titchwell Marsh Coastal Change Project. The plan is to put a breach in the current defences to let saltwater into a current brackish marsh.
I'm going along to an information day at the reserve on Sunday the 21st of September...
