Review

Not many people remember Wild in Your Garden. The working title was Live from Animal Avenue and at the time – 2003 – it was the Natural History unit’s most ambitious outside broadcast to date, uncovering the secret lives of animals in one Bristol neighbourhood. The idea proved a hit with viewers and evolved into the more wide-ranging Springwatch format that has subsequently made wildlife almost as big a ratings winner for BBC2 as baking and cars.

This year, Springwatch celebrates its tenth birthday, and the show migrates from Wales to a new base at the RSPB’s Minsmere reserve on the Suffolk coast. It is one of the richest spots in the British Isles for wildlife, but as ever Springwatch cameras will be roaming further afield, too – to the west coast of Scotland, where Iolo Williams will be reporting daily on species such as white-tailed eagles, beavers and pine martens. All this, and another familiar furry creature returns to the Springwatch fold: Bill Oddie is back.

Summary

New series. Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games present from their new base at RSPB Minsmere in Suffolk as they return with the programme that follows the fortunes of wildlife around the UK. They get to know the badgers, otters, marsh harriers, avocets and other animals that live around the nature reserve, while ornithologist Iolo Williams reports from the wild west coast of Scotland, where he gets up close to the white-tailed eagle - one of the country's largest birds of prey.
