North Dorset Nature – Episode 33

Our weekly programme devoted to wildlife in Shaftesbury and the villages, presented by Dee Abbott.

On this week’s show:

  • Ben Hussey and Natalie Bourchier explore the effects of the latest autumn storm on the small stream that runs through the farm in Motcombe. The changes caused by the extensive rainfall are astonishing.
  • From her small holding in Wardour, Mary Myers sets you another nature quiz based on nature facts from previous shows and local wildlife.
  • Marilyn Morris goes for a walk round the edges of Duncliffe Wood and shares her observations of the wildlife and the surrounding countryside.
  • Nick Crump chats to Mariko Whyte about the latest developments on Shaftesbury becoming a Hedgehog Friendly Town. A practical hands-on workshop was held at Shaftesbury Home Grown and was enthusiastically received by children and adults alike.
