A Welsh adventure for Simon King
Simon - the king of field craft - and his hi-tech, "mission impossible" field team have the unique wildlife of the wilder corners of mid and north Wales in their sights this year.
From the rugged mountain tops down to the beautiful and dramatic coastline, Simon and team are on another mission seeking close encounters with some of our rarest, most surprising and most charismatic animals and investigating some of our most intriguing wildlife mysteries.
Remember how the team delivered the impossible last Spingwatch when they managed to film the elusive Scottish wild cat? This year they are in search of the polecat - another seemingly impossible challenge.
We hope for daily dramas from a nest of the "ghost of the forest" - the magnificent goshawk. Wales is famous for its ancient woodland and we'll be presenting some of their most beautiful and iconic residents - the redstart, the wood warbler and the pied flycatcher. At the coast, the team will be searching for the heaviest marine reptile in the world, the leatherback turtle, which has a bizarre migration that beggars belief.
Simon will be investigating the great seabird mystery: why are some colonies doing fine while others are in crisis? Is it climate change? What's going on?
And of course he'll also be on hand to comment on events down at Pensthorpe.
Excitingly, this year the BBC Wales Naure blog will be reporting back daily with exclusive updates and video clips from Simon's mission.
