Thursday, 23rd April 2020

While we have to keep safe at home and on our own patches right now, Nina Constable allows us to dive into a world of wildlife in the first episode of Wild World: Doorstep Discoveries.

Join Nick Baker, Billy Heaney, Lucy Hodson and Gillian Burke as they share the nature they have found on their doorsteps.

Nick brings us his favourite beetle, Billy shows us his camera set up to watch nocturnal creatures in the woods, Lucy teaches us the secret code of bird song and Gillian reveals the mini beasts in her urban garden. Nina also brings us clips sent in from the public's own back gardens and local patches.

Second episode airs on Sunday 26th April.
