Next Episode of A Year in the Wild is
Nature series which follows the impact of the changing seasons on the ecosystem and diverse wildlife of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Beautifully filmed across one tough year, this is a story of birth and death, predators and prey and the struggle for survival in one of Britainʼs wildest locations.
Spring comes to the Dales and North York Moors National Parks, the season when the parks' animals must find food, a mate and raise a family. Adders battle to secure a mate, while grebes prefer a mating dance. On the coast, a quarter of a million sea birds arrive to nest, many returning to exactly the same nest site every year. And up around Malham Tarn, an injured, pregnant roe deer desperately seeks Spring's green shoots to survive.
High up in Malham Cove, two 40-day-old peregrines must learn how to fly, while south of the North York Moors National Park, a pair of grebes carry their youngsters around on their backs. Facing unseasonably cold weather, times are tough for the roe deer of Malham Tarn.
Autumn is on hold as summer continues, with unexpectedly balmy conditions throwing a life line to the roe deer as they prepare for the winter ahead.
Winter is setting in, and the roe deer must fend off the cold. For salmon at the end of their odyssey, the chill means the time has come to spawn.
