Passionate people: Springwatch needs you!
Springwatch needs you! We know there are people up and down the country who are passionately committed to wildlife. Often it's one particular group of animals which has captured their imagination - is this you? Or do you know someone like this?
Someone who has perhaps become totally fascinated by... erm... dragonflies and turned their entire garden into a dragonfly haven. Or maybe has a stoat that nests under the floorboards every year that they watch (I actually know someone who does this!). Or perhaps they spent their lives putting up boxes for owls... The possibilities are almost endless.
We've already met Dave Cully, the amazing sparrowhawk man, whose entire garden is set up for watching this amazing species. Also, Ben Burville, who seems to spend more time underwater than above in his passionate quest to film extraordinary seal behaviour. Then there's Martin Carty in Mallaig, who is out night after night rescuing confused Manx shearwaters which have become disorientated flying at night. You might also remember the wonderful Maureen Davis, who feeds her badgers here in Bristol.
We would love to come and film some of you inspiring people and the animals you love for this year's Springwatch... so... if you want to share your passion do please get in contact, either by email or, if you prefer, by letter to us at Springwatch, BBC Bristol, Bristol BS8 2LR.
We're really looking forward to hearing from you.
