NATURE: Emma Turner; a life in the reeds
BBC Radio 4, Tue 24 Jan 11.02, rpt Thur 26 Jan 21.02
Drawing on extracts from her book, ‘Broadland Birds’, NATURE tells the remarkable story of Emma Turner, a pioneering bird photographer who lived for many years on a houseboat in the reed beds at Hickling Broad. It was here that she took a remarkable photograph which provided evidence that Bitterns which had been driven to extinction in Britain in the late 1800s were breeding in Norfolk once again.
