There’s one woodland watering hole guaranteed to attract deer, badgers, foxes and more. The cameras will cluster around it at RSPB Arne in Dorset, officially one of our richest nature reserves, with more species than almost anywhere else. Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games know they’ll be able to see an extraordinary array of wildlife. Regular viewers will remember that previously a barn owl took up residence in the studio and cameras have been filming his regular hunting trips over the winter. Also returning is the robotic spoonbill fitted with a hidden camera to observe overwintering waders.
There will be pre-recorded films from across the UK over the next few nights including ones showing the attempts by a male firebrat to find romance, hedgehog rescuers fighting to tackle the decline of the UK’s favourite mammal and the domestic life of a pair of otters who are about to welcome a cub into the world.
New series. Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games return to RSPB Arne in Dorset as they present from their base on Poole Harbour, which is officially the most biodiverse region in the UK, with more species of animals and plants within 10 miles of Wareham than anywhere else in the country. Gillian Burke examines military pillboxes in Studland to explore the lives of hibernating butterflies in winter, while Martin tries to understand the harbour's appeal for waders, particularly avocets, and has an incredible revelation.
