Our Wild Adventures – 4 July 2021 – 4/7/2021 – Sunday – BBC Two

Britain and Ireland
Series 1 Episode 7 of 8

The BBC’s favourite wildlife presenters look back through the archives as they share their most memorable adventures in Britain and Ireland.

Chris Packham remembers a recent filming trip where he had the privilege to spot some extremely rare birds circling the skies above his home county of Hampshire: white-tailed eagles. Gordon Buchanan recalls joining a fishing trawler to film killer whales off the coast of Shetland.

Vianet Djenguet describes his first sight of a cuckoo in Norfolk, a migratory bird whos song Vianet remembers hearing from his childhood in Congo. Chris Packham also remembers a memorable shoot in Norfolk, where he struck gold by finding four grass snakes – and their particularly noxious smell, designed to ward away predators.

Steve Backshall shares memories of filming what he calls ‘one of the greatest natural miracles on earth’ – seahorses. Colin Stafford-Johnson looks back on an incredible encounter he had with basking sharks in the waters around the Skellig Islands. When algae blooms in spring, these gentle giants of the sea can be seen feeding at the waters’ surface.

Finally, Chris Packham shares one more story – joining his old mate and sound recordist Gary Moore to try to hear the mating call of the elusive snipe.
