Filming geese on the Solway Firth
We rushed off Rum after Friday night's show. Amazingly it took us a whole day to get to southern Scotland, which gives you an idea of how remote Rum is.
Before dawn, we headed out on to the Solway Firth. Thousands of barnacle geese were out on their roost on the mudflats. Suddenly, I saw a peregrine falcon swoop over them, and the entire flock took to the air. They flew low over our heads in beautiful morning light, calling to their family members as they went. It was magical - a true spectacle of autumn.
We spent the rest of the day filming barnacle geese around the reserve. We felt a real sense of connection with these birds which we had last seen in the high Arctic. We're all looking forward to Friday's show and sharing this wonderful experience with you.
