Iolo Dros Y Ffin

Host Iolo Williams travels to beautiful locations in England. In the Lake District he walks through great landscapes like Borrowdale and discovers ancient woodlands, a Stone Age circle, red deer and ravens nesting on the high peaks. He travels from the Mendip Hills across the Somerset Levels to the Quantock Hills. He sees rutting roe deer, bitterns on wetlands below Glastonbury Hill and finds cranes living on England’s largest wet meadow. He explores the Peak District – the expansive wild landscape between Manchester and Sheffield where he sees red grouse, mountain hares and dippers nesting above a beautiful river in the Derbyshire Dales. He follows the South Downs Way through Sussex to the white cliffs at Beachy Head. On his way he visits an ancient yew woodland and rare birds and butterflies. He travels through Northumberland to the Farne Islands where he discovers red squirrels living in one of the few locations in Britain where they survive in their natural habitat – an oak woodland. He explores the Norfolk Broads – Britain’s richest wetlands to see swallowtail butterflies and Chinese water deer.
