Meet the Experts

Name: Nigel Matthews

Job: Head of Visitor and Recreation Services, New Forest National Park Authority

My Fascinating Wildlife Fact:
The thousands of Brent Geese that spend the winter on the New Forest National Park coastal marshes fly here from northern Russia, up to 8,000km away. Some are thought to fly non-stop (for two-three days) covering over 3,000km at a time!
