I sit down with Merlin Becker, who previously worked for the GWCT at their model research farm in Scotland. We discuss methods of sustainable land management tackling a wide spectrum of topics: from the Otterburn research project to the use of fire for ecological sustainability; we delve into the crossover between traditional knowledge and science and talk through the new hare counting methodology, curlew conservation and raven control.
