Tonight on BBC NI at 7:30pm it’s the first episode of the new series of Home Ground who visited Hare Island on our Lower Lough Erne islands reserve earlier in the summer. They are looking at how conservation grazing is an important part of habitat management on RSPB NI’s Lower Lough Erne Islands reserve and witnessing a cot transport of expectant heifers from Hare Island back to shore. Cot captain and assistant warden Fionnbarr Cross will be interviewed alongside grazier Mark Thompson with Andrew Gallagher and Tom Ervine working hard in the background. You can watch an RSPB NI preview on social media by clicking here or on the RSPB NI YouTube Playlist.
Home Ground will be repeated on BBC 2 on Saturday at 6:30pm and will be available to view here shortly after broadcast.
