A ranger's seasonal account of managing wild animals to revive a lost landscape at the National Trust's oldest nature reserve. Not many have had the experience of managing a herd of 150 wild horses and cattle, weathering the elements to cope creatively with challenges from difficult births to overpopulation, injury and escapes. 'Wetland Diaries' is a seasonal account of ranger life and wildlife in England's flat lands: restoring and rewilding a lost landscape once widespread. Ajay gives an open and honest personal insight into the varied lives of rangers working with livestock, delving into history and folklore to share the spirit and atmosphere of the windswept East Anglian Fens, sharing a spectrum of emotion, and weather, experienced. Ajay has protected the wildlife and livestock of Wicken Fen through drought, disease, gale-force winds and a global pandemic. He shares the struggles and smiles of managing breeding livestock in the UK's first rewilding project mitigating climate change and creating space for nature and people alike. AUTHOR: Ajay Tegala shares his passion for the natural world through his work as a TV presenter, and his credits include BBC 'Springwatch' and the documentary 'Inside the Bat Cave'. As a wildlife ranger, he is grounded in the world of conservation. At the age of fifteen, he decided to become a conservationist after a week's work experience with The National Trust. He studied Environmental Conservation and volunteered as an assistant warden on the Norfolk coast at Blakeney Point. After graduating, he became the full-time ranger on the Point, protecting shorebirds and seals.
