Knepp Wildland has become one of the most important areas in Britain for breeding birds. It's brimming with butterflies and humming with crickets. It's bucking the trend of biodiversity declines across the board.
Because the team here has allowed in the untidy. They've welcomed a tangle of scrub and a knot of thorns.
The most inspiring thing about this is the speed of change. Just 15 years ago, this was an intensive farm.
Thank you….. I appreciated the way this episode was edited and structured as it revealed new details and points of interest in amongst the now familiar but important Knepp story. Another great ‘shout-out’ for beavers and their essential ecosystem engineering role within the UK. This series of podcasts, which is always so beautifully illustrated & well presented is becoming an important catalogue of stories showing the progress of rewilding in Europe. Great work!
