This week, Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury are visiting the Thames Valley. Matt takes to the water with an Olympian to find out what makes Henley-on-Thames such a special place for rowing. Julia is at Burnham Beeches on the hunt for giant wood ants with an unusual defence mechanism. John Craven visits the Household Cavalry as they take part in an equine health survey launched by the charity Blue Cross. Tom Heap travels from the south west coast of England to Scotland to find out why our seabirds are in decline. Meanwhile, down on the farm, Adam Henson’s looking for a name for a rather unusual Highland calf.
Name Eric's silver calfOn Adam's farm, Eric the Bull has become a father to an unusual calf. Rather than having red hair, the latest addition to the Highland herd is actually silver! This unusual male calf is yet to have a name, so Adam is asking for some help from you. It needs to begin with the letter ‘N’ and could be related to his colour or his Scottish roots. Adam is open to all suggestions – however unusual. We’ll find out whether any of your suggestions take his fancy in a few weeks time.

During John Craven’s visit to Ely Cathedral he meets a team who are looking after rescued hedgehogs and releasing them back to the wild as part of a conservation project. Hedgehog numbers are in decline, but by tagging them the team from Shrepreth hedgehog hospital hope to find out which areas are best for hedgehogs to thrive in. And you can help too…
