Winterwatch 2014: The seasonal nature show will return to BBC2 this month

Wildlife experts Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games explain more about British nature from the bonnie Scottish Highlands this month

Using a network of live cameras, wildlife presenters Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games will see where the winter weather hits hardest as part of their new Winterwatch show this month (January 20-23 on BBC2).


The team ventures to the mountainous Scottish Highlands, where they find golden eagles, otters, red deer and great tits. They will investigate how, in these harsh freezing conditions, species survive against all odds.

The team will also reveal which animals have benefited from the mild weather we enjoyed in 2013, and the impact this will have on other creatures.

The Winterwatch crew will also travel south, to Brighton, where they’ll report on hibernating hedgehogs and follow the footsteps of urban foxes.

Set to be packed full of advice on how viewers can help the nature around them during the ruthless weather conditions, catch Winterwatch from January 20-23 on BBC2.
