There is no doubting Trevor Amos’s passion for wildfowling.

The 65-year-old says he was back on the marshes a mere five months after a triple heart bypass.

Trevor is secretary of the Gedney Drove End & District club, and his wife Louise appears to be just as devoted, working “relentlessly” as membership secretary, and their son Nigel is on the committee.

Trevor says: “I have been out there on the marsh until gone midnight under the moon.

“Experience tells us where it’s safe to go. I always say to people, if you don’t know it, keep off it, or go with somebody that does know.”

Trevor also conducts survey work on the marsh as a warden for Natural England.

The East Anglian Film Archive captured Kenzie Thorpe on film in 1972 in a documentary called Kenzie the Wild Goose Man, in which he demonstrates bird and wildlife impressions. The film and background information about Kenzie’s life can be seen at www.eafa.org.uk
