Ornithologist and conservationist Dan Rouse joins me for a walk on Rhossili Headland, on the Gower Peninsula, Wales. A well-respected birder and wildlife educator, Dan tells me how she became interested in birds at a young age, and how her advocacy for conservation of Welsh wildlife has led to tv and radio appearances. During the walk, Dan helps me identify the differences between Skylarks and Meadow Pipits, Cormorants and Shags, and Common Gulls and Herring Gulls.
