Who's where for Springwatch 2009
The Springwatch phenomenon returns at 8pm Monday 25 May, BBC Two for another three-week celebration of UK wildlife and wildlife people - live and interactive from across the country. Join our new presenter team of Simon King, Kate Humble, Chris Packham, Gordon Buchanan and Martin Hughes-Games as they watch our daily animal family dramas unfold, as they happen.
We're delighted that Chris Packham will be joining Simon King and Kate Humble as co-presenter of Springwatch. In addition, former Springwatch producer Martin Hughes-Games makes his debut in front of the camera. There's all you need to know about the new guys here.
For 2009, we are returning to last year's new home, Pensthorpe nature reserve in north Norfolk. This is where most of our mini cameras will be deployed, keeping us up to date on a whole range of animal family stories from around this incredibly rich wildlife hotspot. Read more about what we expect from Pensthorpe here.
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.
Wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan, loved by our viewers for his Glasgow fox diary and his coverage of the seal breeding season on the Farne islands, goes on the trail of the elusive badger in Essex. There's what we can expect from Gordon here.
With the holiday season about to start, and the credit crunch making more and more people consider a holiday in the UK, producer-turned-presenter Martin Hughes-Games and the Springwatch team provide an essential guide to holiday-making with a wild twist.
