S1E1: Love and Loneliness

In S1E1, Devon and Richard tell the story of Nigel “No Mates” the lonely Gannet, explore the out of this world reason behind a massive crab migration, and perform this weeks Animal Sound of the Week!

Here is a video of the late Nigel “No Mates” attempting to woo his concrete lover. Of course, his love remained unrequited.

As promised, here is a video of the young crab hatchlings at the beginning of their 9 day migration last year. This years migration took place about 3 weeks ago!

Just look at how cute they are!
