It’s October, and the red deer rut is well underway. The biggest, strongest males are vying for position to pass on their genes, and as the leaves turn to the browns of autumn, and the salmon push on upstream to spawn, it is as captivating as it is beautiful. We have spent the first few episodes focusing on people and our impacts on the uplands, but in this episode, we turn our attention more to the wildlife here. What role will they play in our future decisions as to how we use this landscape?
This is not a sit-down studio interview podcast. Over the coming weeks, we’ll join Byron and Sarah as they travel the country and get out on the hills, meeting guests ranging from soil scientists, ecologists and rewilding enthusiasts to gamekeepers, chefs, crofters and deer managers.
