Life on the edge - visit to Rum National Nature Reserve
Listen as Francesca Osowska, Chief Executive of NatureScot visits Rum and explores this magical National Nature Reserve for this first time. Interviewed by Ian Sargent, Nature Reserves Manager.
As you approach Rum, the rugged mountains set a dramatic stage for spectacular wildlife and archaeology. Circling eagles glide overhead, majestic red deer graze the hillsides and otters frolic between sea and land. In this episode, Francesca and Ian go in pursuit of the otherworldly calls of Manx shearwaters as they return to the island at dusk.
