Chris and Meg’s Wild Summer – 12 September 2021 – 12/9/2021 – Sunday – BBC Two

Lake District
Series 1 Episode 3 of 6

Chris Packham and stepdaughter Megan McCubbin continue their wildlife-watching road trip round Britain, this time exploring the Lake District.

Megan surprises Chris with some animals that are renowned for helping to reduce stress – alpacas. They take two, named Ziggy and Danny, for a short walk and a paddle in Derwentwater. Next, they head off in search of the much more elusive red squirrel, as the Lake District is one of their last strongholds in England. They round off their first day by settling in for a pint at the Badger Bar and awaiting the arrival of its main attraction- a live badger cam.

The next morning, the pair head South to Foulshaw Moss, a nature reserve for one of Britain’s rarest habitats – raised peat bog. With the help of a local wildlife enthusiast, they find the white-tailed darter, a rare dragonfly that Chris has only seen once before so he’s delighted to spot it. Continuing south to the coast, Chris takes Megs to one of his favourite places, Walney Island, where they catch sight of grey seals, eider ducks and terns. They reflect on why spending time in nature is not only therapeutic but necessary for their wellbeing.
