Take A Hike North

Writer and poet Christopher Somerville visits the Firth of Forth with Dave Richardson of traditional music band Boys of the Lough to witness dawn at Aberlady Bay, and watch as 25,000 geese rise up and fly from shore to land in squadrons across the sky. Both men have been visiting the bay for years, and out on the dunes we hear them discuss their love of this particular landscape alongside some of the poetry and music inspired by this natural phenomenon.
