Winter watch is on

Winterwatch is an offshoot of Springwatch which is a programme that started on BBC TV several years ago. The presenters have changed over time, but it gives us a view of the British Isles through the seasons.

Winterwatch is lovely, seeing badgers, falcons, water rats, deer, stoats and seabirds amongst other animals gives you an idea of how they live and survive and in some cases thrive during the winter.

The programme explores wildlife and behaviour over a couple of weeks, sampling their lives and how humans affect them. The series is a wonderful reminder of nature. Some of it is filmed live during the evening programmes and also has videos of other animal activity happening at this time of year.

If you want to know more about the natural history of the British Isles during winter you can watch it in the UK on BBC 2, or the BBC I player, or the Facebook page which is called BBC Springwatch. Or

  1. I like both winter watch and spring watch 😊 I like the part where they show different birds, from the minute like kingfishers, robins, and blue tits to the majestic birds like with white tailed eagles and the egrets. I also like red squirrels, I created a digital drawing of it! It’s a great programme. So sad to see the numbers dwindle, but also interesting to see and learn about projects to reintroduce wildlife like beavers.

    I am looking forward to tomorrow’s Wild Isles by D Attenborough. Will be a treat!

      1. I watch them all. It’s something to look forward to. Different from the repeats and recycled programmes that they show on the television.

        I also did Birdwatch for 2 years on the trot (missed this year’s one because I had module deadlines!) Doing my bit for the birds.

        I am not an expert, but I like to observe things! Nature is very fascinating. Also a good distraction from the monotony of work, heh
