with Michael Scott.
While shelducks borrow rabbit burrows to make their nests and eider ducks embark on their frenetic courtship, down in the mud the mussels brace themselves for the annual carnage that drives them to the edge of extinction. A typical spring morning on one of Britain's smallest but most studied estuaries - the Ythan near Aberdeen.
