Podcast Episode 8: The Lock-down Round-up

It’s Episode 8 and I’m joined by Side-show Dave! We go ringing at a noisy redwing roost in the Wildland scrub, and back at home we enjoy a glass of wine and reflect on some of the marvellous wildlife encounters we’ve had at Knepp in 2020. Tune in for a relaxing bit of blethering as we take stock of the crazy year that was 2020 and share how Knepp provided an oasis in our landscape for wildlife and people alike. We bounce from feathery house martin feet to damselfly roosts that look like fairy lights, and from the night of the living eel to a Belgian-ringed fieldfare!
