A report about nocturnal animals and birds and their adaptations. The report shows footage of barn owls, mice, hedgehogs, bats, badgers, moles and worms.

First broadcast:
26 February 2007

Can be used for pupils researching different nocturnal animals. Pupils could watch the clip before taking part in drama activities, acting out the behaviour of the animals to reinforce understanding. Can be paused after the first question and possible answers taken: "Why do we think owls’ eyes are so big?" Could be used for descriptive writing focusing on the use of adjectives to describe animals’ features.
