Previously on Mockery Manor: After Parker shows her the photograph of Auntie Janet with Margot and the park contractors, JJ realises that Janet was the screaming woman from the Dreamland recording. She runs to call the police, but is distracted by her ex-boyfriend Graham, who has run away from his wife and unexpectedly arrived at the park. Needing a place to stay, JJ escorts Graham to the uninhabited gardener's cottage in the woods. But once he is alone, Graham becomes the third victim of the Mockery Manor murderer. Meanwhile, a terrified and dishevelled Bette reappears in the park. The twins are reunited, and Bette tells JJ that Manager Norton abducted and drugged her. Bette had awoken in the woods to find Norton digging a hole, before she overpowered him, and beat him to death with his shovel. On this episode: JJ concocts a plan to help Bette escape the police, Margot is visited by her estranged mother Dorothy, and Parker ends up in hot water...
Our last few shows have been focused on local wildlife & different ways to attract it & maintain it in order to help nature, however, on this episode, we discuss with author of 365 Days Wild & Campaigner, Lucy McRobert, how nature can help us & the importance of its role in regards to mental health.
When talking about how her love for wildlife began, Lucy explained how her passion for nature & wildlife was 'toned down' in her teens due to social pressures of fitting in, something that she also explained still very much exists today in some areas. However this bulb was switched back on when getting into twitching, something I had never heard of but now, I've made Lucy promise to take me!
It's been scientifically proven that nature & access to green space improves someone's mental health. Lucy explained how it's more than just going for a walk. Using the senses from touch, smell, sound & even taste (safety first though) can make the experience so much greater & connect you more to the area you're in. We both agreed that being around wildlife & nature, is essentially, a kind of therapy.

Lucy's book, 365 Days Wild is also available from her website, www.365dayswild.com or at all major book stores/online.
