Travellers' Tales with Mary Colwell

Saturday 5th June 2021 - 05:30 pm

Meet Mary Colwell - writer, conservationist, campaigner, and radio producer of natural history documentaries. She’s passionate about the curlew, a bird rapidly decreasing in numbers. She tells me about this captivating bird with its haunting cry, her 500 mile walk across the UK and Ireland to raise awareness of its decline, which gave her a taste for other very long walks. So we talk about pilgrimage, what it means to walk with a spiritual purpose, and how to hold onto hope in our ever more precarious natural world.
