Spoonbills return to Norfolk Broads for first time in nearly 400 years – Channel 4 News

Conservationists are celebrating the return of a long lost breeding species to the Norfolk Broads.

Three fledgling spoonbills have been born, the first chicks known to have hatched in these wetlands for around four hundred years.

The protected birds, named after the shape of their long bills, which they use to scoop up food from mud flats – have nested at Hickling Broad.
