Scolt Head Island is a National Nature Reserve forming a part of the North Norfolk Heritage Coast.
There are just a few places left in Norfolk that can be ascribed the adjective ‘wild’; Stiffkey Freshes is such a place. If you are an early bird and can get to the dunes as dawn breaks, or you are prepared to stay as dusk approaches, you will witness nature at its most impressive. These are the times of day that you will see a great deal of bird activity, with skeins of geese and flights of duck going to or returning from their feeding grounds. You may also see a fox hunting along the foreshore or a muntjak ambling along amongst the dunes.
Professor Marcus Greef of Oxford University has published a paper relating to the possible connection that the regular consumption of Cromer crabs by local children may have on their intellectual ability.
