01Harbingers20190408

In a series of poetic vignettes, nature writer Jim Crumley paints a captivating picture of Scotland’s wilderness in spring and the joys of observing its abundant wildlife. The staccato, jazzily-inventive sound of the mistle thrush singing for a mate acts as a harbinger of Spring while kestrels hover over the Stirlingshire hills and peregrine falcons act out their courtship. A majestic sea eagle with its vast wingspan swoops incongruously over the Lowland hills and a peregrine starts to mimic the eagle’s flight pattern. Then, at a mere ten yards, he’s face to face with a Roebuck, armed with blood-smeared antlers and a hostile stare.
Reader: Simon Tait. Abridger: Linda Cracknell. Producer: Bruce Young.
