Spring Special

Episode 1264 Spring Special



The team follows 24 hours of spring - a lifetime for some, the beginning of existence for others. Ellie Harrison is up with the larks, listening out for native birds lured back to Britain's shores by the promise of warmer weather, and Matt Baker is on the Somerset Levels in pursuit of the crane, which has recently returned home after disappearing from the wetlands. Other highlights include John Craven finding beauty in the blossom that will become fruitful later in the year, the rise of the midday mayflies, and weatherman John Hammond joining Adam Henson to reveal the secrets behind April showers.
