In the first episode of this series, we find out how hedgerows are helping farmers protect an abundance of wildlife, from birds to bumble bees, butterflies and fungi, in Herefordshire.
Katie Morgans invites us to Turnastone Court Farm along the banks of the River Dore. Katie always wanted to work with animals, but followed her nose to a placement here, which sees her working with tenant farmers and helping out on wildlife surveys.
Ruth Moss, a Wildlife Monitoring Officer at The Countryside Restoration Trust, takes us on a windswept bird survey to identify some of the species sheltering and feeding in the hedgerows here in the Golden Valley.
We also hear from Jonathan Drori, author of Around the World in 80 Plants, about his passion for trees and plants and why being curious is paramount to success.
