BBC Radio 4 Tweet of The Day Paul Evans on the Merlin #Halloween  | World Environment Nature News | Scoop.it

Broadcast 2 Nov 2017 05:58 also available to listen again after broadcast. Merlins are "ariel sprites" says writer Paul Evans, but they also kill skylarks in a rather gruesome manner as we hear in this specially commissioned dark Halloween tale. Tweet of the Day has captivated the Radio 4 audience with its daily 90 seconds of birdsong. But what of the listener to this avian chorus? In this new series of Tweet of the Day, we bring to the airwaves the conversational voices of those who listen to and are inspired by birds. Building on the previous series, a more informal approach to learning alongside a renewed emphasis on encounter with nature and reflection in our relationship with the natural world. Producer: Sarah Blunt Photographer: David Gibbon.

Country diary: huge jellyfish shipwrecked on the sands by Paul Evans  

Country diary: huge jellyfish shipwrecked on the sands by Paul Evans   | World Environment Nature News | Scoop.it
Morfa Harlech, Gwynedd They have drifted on ocean currents for 500m years, pulsing gently towards landfall

 

The wave smudges out something written in the sand with a stick. I imagine it as a spell cast to charm ashore those lost at sea. And so it does, as tides ebb and flow, stranding the barrel jellyfish. These extraordinary creatures, also known as dustbin-lid jellyfish because of their size and shape, have been shipwrecked after an epic voyage.

 

Rhizostoma pulmo or R octopus is the largest jellyfish in British waters (they can grow to nearly 90cm in diameter) and is harvested around Wales for high-value medical-grade collagen. It feeds on plankton and its sting does not injure humans any more than do nettles; it is fed upon by leatherback turtles and sunfish.
