Countryfile “Wonderful Wildlife” 14 August 2022: Sunday on BBC One
Ellie Harrison is at Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue to help care for injured creatures great and small, from orphaned fledglings to deer and hedgehogs. Ellie finds out why rescue centres across the UK become increasingly busy during the summer months and why this Oxfordshire centre is under so much pressure that it has had to temporarily close its doors. In just six months, it has taken in the number of wild animals it would normally help in a year.
Ellie also delves into the Countryfile archives to revisit films by some of Britain’s finest wildlife film-makers about the wonders of our natural world. Richard Taylor Jones revealed the wooing techniques of a kestrel desperate to impress a potential mate, Tom Hartwell took us up close with the mason bee, Hamza Yassin went in search of red deer fawns, and Jack Perks revealed the wealth of wildlife living in his garden pond.
