Chris and Meg’s Wild Summer – 26 September 2021 – 26/9/2021 – BBC Two

Cairngorms – Series 1 Episode 5 of 6 – Chris Packham and stepdaughter Megan McCubbin continue their wildlife-watching road trip round Britain, this time exploring the rugged Cairngorms in Scotland.

Chris and Meg explore the ancient Caledonian woodlands of Abernethy National Nature Reserve, where Chris is on a mission to show Meg a very rare flower. Deep in the forest they eventually find what Chris was looking for: the twinflower.

The next day, Chris and Meg head to the tranquillity of Loch Insh in search of one of our most impressive birds of prey – the osprey. Once hunted to extinction in Scotland, these fish-eating raptors are now successfully breeding in the highlands again.

Their next stop is another loch – the beautiful Loch an Eilein with its island castle – where Chris recounts to Meg a story from his youth, complete with his diary entry from the time. Rounding off their second day, the pair head to a wildlife hide in Strathspey in the hope of spotting an elusive mammal – the pine marten – but they find badgers instead.

Lastly, Meg has something a bit more energetic planned: a deer-watching trip up a Cairngorms mountain.
