Springwatch to celebrate 10th birthday by broadcasting from Suffolk coast

Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games will return to showcase more exotic and familiar British species and Bill Oddie will be back to mark the special year

Nature experts Martin Hughes-Games, Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan will broadcast Springwatch from one of the most wildlife rich areas of the UK this month – the RSPB Minsmere in sunny Suffolk.


More than 5,600 species reside in this particular site, consisting of reedbed heathland, woodland, grassland, sand dunes, shingle beaches and saline lagoons. It’s home to rare birds including avocets, bitterns, marsh harriers, plus badgers, otters and red deer.

The team will also travel around the country and abroad to bring us stories on urban foxes in Brighton, cuckoos from Africa and white-tailed eagles, beavers and pine martens in Scotland.

To mark the show’s 10-year anniversary, Bill Oddie will return with a look back at British wildlife and how it’s grown, changed and adapted in the last decade.

Springwatch starts on Monday 26 May on BBC2
