Springwatch presenters arrive ahead of filming at Wild Ken Hill in Snettisham

The latest series of popular nature show Springwatch, broadcast live from Wild Ken Hill, starts tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8pm on BBC 2.

Yesterday presenters Michael Strachan and Chris Packham were on site getting ready for the show and enthusing over their new surrounding.

The BBC has installed 30 remote cameras over the estate between Snettisham and Heacham.

It is part of a rewilding project and apart from beavers also has rare breeds such as red poll cattle and wild boar roaming free.

Michaela told BBC Look East that she had been impressed by such a “forward-thinking working farm” and had been thrilled that in the couple of days she had been there she had seen hares.

Chris, who said he was loving being out and smelling the hawthorn, said: “I think we can quite safely say that the vast majority of people have been through the most difficult, stressful, frustrating and frightening year that they’re ever going to have to live through and nature we have learned throughout the course of that period can offer us enormous respite and solace. What recent studies have shown is that being out in nature is the best course of treatment but actually watching it on television, watching it on the internet, almost reaches the same peak of intensity.”
