Into The Wild

UK Bird Crime with Indy Greene

October 5, 2020

On a previous episode with Lucy Lapwing, we discussed how NOT BORING UK wildlife is, and today we prove that point even more by discussing raptors that call this nation, their home.

My guest, Indy Greene, a young naturalist, birder & campaigner, joins me to discuss the different types of raptors we can see, where they like to live & why they are important. Not only that, but Indy is very talented when it comes to bird calls, which of course, I made him demonstrate on the show.

We briefly discussed a topic that has been in the media a lot in the last few weeks & that's raptor persecution. From what it is & what it can mean for raptors, to details of the recent RSPB 2019 incident report, Indy clearly & passionately tells us more on this topic.
