Our work

Little tern coming in to land on a shingle beach

School children give little terns a fighting chance on the Norfolk Coast 

School children help make clay decoys that replicate little terns. It's hoped they'll attract the UK's smallest seabird to nest in more suitable areas of Blakeney Point and improve breeding success.


The use of drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) on the Norfolk Coast and Broads 

The unauthorised use of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more commonly known, is not permitted on or over National Trust land as part of our byelaws without the necessary required qualifications and a licence granted by us. Find out more here.
