Live from the heart of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan share the news from the wildlife cameras over the past 24 hours, checking in on the robin, blackcap, chaffinch and reed bunting nests, as well as seeing how the sickly great tit chick is faring.

Patrick Aryee gets involved with a brand new piece of science from the RSPB, who are trying to work out why starlings are in such steep decline, and Lucy Cooke tries to follow the feeding routes used by the lesser horseshoe bats.

Gillian Burke is in Glasgow to meet an unlikely urban resident - water voles that are living miles from the nearest water source, right in the heart of the city.

There is a two-part film following the fate of a family of eider ducks on the Isle of May, and a report on the health of Major Oak - the tree that Robin Hood allegedly used as a hideaway - and that is in poor health due to the tourists that flock to see it.

There is an update on the long-eared owls in Wales, where our cameraman also caught some other nocturnal creatures that hunt alongside them including the little-known nightjar.
