Countryside Matters 29.04.24

Jenny Devitt’s line-up today: • Dorset wildlife writer Jane Adams discusses the dawn chorus, why it happens and the fact we’ve only recently realised it’s not just the male birds that sing • Drs. Peter Kennedy and Thomas O’Shea-Wheller of Exeter University talk about their extraordinary method of identifying the voracious and aggressive Asian hornet • Dairy farmer, butterfly enthusiast and elm conservationist Peter Shallcross talks about the Dutch Elm Disease resistant strains of elm • Finally Jenny brings us an interview she recorded ten years ago at the Stock Gaylard Oak Fair with Professor Oliver Rackham, a few months before his death, widely respected for his knowledge of the British countryside, its woods and trees.
