Life before the Lens

Iolo recounts his fascinating experiences as a Species Officer for the RSPB. From the farmer who held an egg collector over a 40-foot cliff to a colleague who kept half a village awake with his snoring, to an oyster catcher that briefly held up Prince Charles’ train. Hear about the wildlife and the threats they face, but also some of the great characters he has met on his journey.
