"I've been walking around in the broads a lot and it's quite beautiful. When I was doing the owl mural, I spent a deal of time watching the owls fly there. It's pure inspiration."

The murals are being made in collaboration with Suffolk Wildlife Trust, forming part if a project funded by the Carlton Marshes Heritage fund.

When complete, the five murals will create a graffiti trail to the marshes, and aim to remind residents of the nature which surrounds the town.

ATM expects to return to the town to being work on his next project in October.
