Very informative

A very interesting and enjoyable podcast about the UK’s wildlife. The hosts obviously know their topic, which makes it very informative. I have also found it very inspiring.

In these trying times the hosts and their guests discuss British wildlife with great enthusiasm and knowledge. From amphibians to moles and much more, would highly recommend.
