Winterwatch, Series 1 Episode 4 of 4

Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games report live on wildlife stories from the Scottish Highlands, revealing how the UK's wildlife is surviving this challenging season.

The team find out why cities become a haven for wildlife in winter, and the Seal Diary reaches its climax, as pups start to leave the beach for life in the open ocean. But for some animals, like the fox, a hint of spring is already in the air and the mating season is under way.
