The people and the stories at the heart of the British countryside. Ellie Harrison is on the beaches of Norfolk. They took a battering in December from the biggest storm surge in 60 years. But now they are bouncing back. Ellie visits the RSPB's big reserve at Snettisham to see for what is being done to repair the damage done by the storm. She goes to Hunstanton to meet Michael Kennedy, who has spent 20 years walking the beach picking up pebbles to help protect the cliffs from the elements and she visits the RSPCA rescue centre where they are about to return seal pups scattered by December's storm back to the wild. Ellie also looks back at some of the best bits of Countryfile to have featured beach-themed stories. Like the time Matt Baker helped clean up one of the most beautiful stretches on the Gower Peninsula, when Julia Bradbury witnessed one of the biggest spectacles in the bird world at Snettisham and when Adam Henson went on a welly safari off the Dorset coast.moreless
