I’m Trevor, married to Jane, and happily retired. We’ve had our place in Aylmerton since 2000 but it’s only in the last couple of years that we’ve been able to spend the majority of our time here. But with family living abroad – Australia and Chile, coupled with our love of birds, it still means we spend a fair amount of our time travelling.

From Egypt to Ecuador, the Falklands to Florida, Thailand to Tunisia, I’ve been lucky enough to look for birds in their many varied forms and locations… so why Aylmerton?? Well as anyone interested in birds will know, Norfolk is the top county in Britain, with it’s close proximity to northern Europe and it’s rich & varied habitats – from Broads to Brecks, this is the place to live. As well as being within easy reach of most of the top locations, including Cley NWT – Britain’s oldest and arguably best loved bird reserve (where I’m a volunteer guide), Aylmerton has plenty of great birding habitat of it’s own. Most of the Felbrigg estate is within the parish, as are the ancient woodlands of the Cromer Ridge and we’ve plenty of other bird-rich habitats besides.
So with all this nature on our doorstep I thought it would be a good idea to capture and share some of it through a regular diary – and so AND, the Aylmerton Nature Diary is born!
