This year BBC Springwatch is looking forward, working to keep the UK connected to our native wildlife with three weeks of live programmes.
The stories of this spring will be revealed by presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan, as they explore a landscape with co-existence at its heart in Norfolk. Iolo Williams enjoys the solitude of The Highlands of Scotland and Gillian Burke immerses herself in the tranquillity of the glorious Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland. There will also be nature notes from a raft of wildlife presenters based across the UK.
Episode one comes live from brand new locations across the UK. Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan are at Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk, as cameras capture the daily dramas of birds such as avocets and barn owls, lapwings and yellow hammers.
Springwatch begins Tuesday 25th May at 8pm on BBC Two.
