Radio 4’s “Open Country” this morning had an interesting interview with Mark Gibson at Craigengillan, and a visit to the Dark Sky Observatory. Also much about the Wild Spring Festival in Dumfries and Galloway: click here to listen on IPlayer.
Also: “Wind farm-free zones planned for Scotland” – an article in the Scotsman on recent pressure by Scottish Natural Heritage on the government to keep Scotland’s wild places free of wind farm development. Apparently most of this land is so far defined to be in the north and west of Scotland. Perhaps the Galloway Forest Park should also benefit: you can’t have a “Dark” park unless it is also a “Wild” park. There were articles on the same topic in The Times and the Herald.
