North Dorset Nature – Episode 39

Our weekly programme devoted to wildlife in Shaftesbury and the villages, presented by Mary Myers.

On this week’s show:

  • Donheads author Chris Nicholson reads a seasonal piece of his nature writing.
  • Nick Crump chats to Mariko Whyte about hibernation. Why is it necessary? And why do some animals do it but not others?
  • Natalie Bourchier and Ben Hussey talk about the herons they spot regularly on their Motcombe farm and how much these huge birds look like flying dinosaurs!
