Chris and Kate in the wilds of Norfolk

Tim Scoones Tim Scoones | 10:42 UK time, Tuesday, 11 May 2010

Chris and Kate will be on hand to monitor our daily animal dramas as they unfold at our North Norfolk wildlife hotspot.

Who could forget last year's drama at Pensthorpe? We had murder mysteries and infanticide, untidy parents and lethal assassins. This year our camera team has been hard at work to entice even more wildlife onto our screens, forging into new areas to get us up-close-and-personal to animals we've never met before.

We're hoping that our newly installed woodland nest boxes might entice a nuthatch or a tree creeper for a mini cam exclusive. Or that just maybe the kingfishers and otters will move into their purpose-built riverside apartments! Perhaps we'll even get our first ever views of adorable baby harvest mice or water voles inside their nests? Whatever happens, Chris and Kate will be there to keep an eye on daily developments and bring you the day's news.

Staking out the bank side and filming underwater, we'll be opening up a freshwater world, not fully explored by the Springwatch team until now.

And this year for the first time, Chris and Kate are venturing further afield to explore the wilds of Norfolk beyond Pensthorpe. Chris and Kate are hoping for some close encounters with the local wildlife, from seals and sparrowhawks, to swallowtails and glow worms.
