The Shannon

Yesterday I chanced upon BBC Two's Natural World 8/10 Ireland's Wild River: The Mighty Shannon. This is a masterly film by naturalist and cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson, who spent a year paddling his canoe through stretches of the longest river in the British Isles. His filming of kingfishers, spawning pike, red squirrels, orange tipped butterflies, whooper swans, great crested grebe chicks and other natural treasures is magnificent. Watch the repeat on BBC Two on 19 July or catch it on iPlayer: CLICK.
