Ramblings - Series 14 - Episode 3


Clare Balding joins members of the North Wales Gay Outdoor Club for a coastal walk on Anglesey. Many of the members joined the group because they wanted to meet like-minded people in a relaxed and positive environment. Pete Burling hopes the group is an antidote to the gay clubbing scene and finds that it offers a non-threatening and supportive atmosphere to those taking the first steps in coming out. Keen birdwatcher Jane Prosser helps Clare look for some of the rare chough that can be found around the cliffs of Anglesey. Identifiable as a member of the crow family with its black plumage, it has a startling red bill and legs, making it look more exotic than the usual gulls that you expect on a coastal walk. Jane grew up near here and says that her father was a botanist and was for ever dragging her through hedges, and it seems to have rubbed off on her.
