The Brecks, Norfolk | Suffolk

The Brecks are a large rural feature spanning almost 370 square miles
across the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, England. The Brecks
contain large areas of heathlands, wetlands, and dry lands of flint
and sand. They also host the largest lowland pine woodlands in the
United Kingdom, consisting mainly of Scots Pine. The Brecks are one of
the driest areas in England and are home to a vast array of wildlife,
including adders, copper butterflies, stone curlews and nightjars.
There are four National Nature Reserves situated within the Brecks,
and fifty-six Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image. - Stephen Hawking
