Description

Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury discovers why it's important to look after moorland. Years of neglect and overgrazing had left the moorland surrounding Lake Vyrnwy scared and dried out, however, an intensive conservation effort has now restored much of the natural hydrology, important in preserving the reserve’s wildlife and fresh water reservoir.
