Episode 1

The team launch a citizen science project, asking people to survey their garden's wildlife to help scientists build a comprehensive report of what lives on the nation’s doorsteps.

It is May Bank holiday and Springwatch is back – launching a week of special 90-minute programmes celebrating all the very best of our UK wildlife.

Broadcasting live from the Dell of Abernethy in the Cairngorms, Chris Packham, Iolo Williams and Michaela Strachan profile this special wilderness and the animals that live there. Meanwhile, Gillian Burke is in Cornwall bringing topical reports on the state of our coastal wildlife.

In the first show the presenters launch the largest Springwatch citizen science project ever attempted. Working with the British Trust for Ornithology, Garden Watch asks people to survey the wildlife living in their gardens in the hope of helping scientists build a comprehensive report of exactly what lives on the nation’s doorsteps.
