FANS of Springwatch will be delighted that the popular BBC wildlife show is returning for a new series.
Here's everything you need to know about Springwatch 2021.
When does Springwatch 2021 start on BBC Two?
Springwatch 2021 will begin at 8pm on Tuesday May 25, live on BBC Two.
The new series will be broadcast live from Tuesday to Friday for three weeks, with the show wrapping up on Friday 11 June.
Whilst the Springwatch team will still bring our favorite British wildlife into our living rooms each night, the format for this series is slightly different to last year's show.
The team will be spread across three separate locations around the UK instead of presenting the show together from one main hub.
The show will explore how the late spring is affecting a range of wildlife, from curlews and owls to otters and golden hares.
Who's presenting Springwatch 2021?
Fan favorites Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan, Gillian Burke and Iolo Williams return once again to present the show.
The fab four were reduced in numbers in 2020 when Michaela Strachan was unable to join the cast for last year's Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch.
The much-loved TV presenter was prevented from travelling from her home in South Africa due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
The show will also feature several pre-recorded films from other contributors, including Chris' stepdaughter, Megan McCubbin.
Where is Springwatch 2021 filmed?
The new series will be filmed and broadcast from three different locations across the UK.
Chris and Michaela will be hosting from Wild Ken Hill, a rewilding agriculture project in Norfolk.
The 1,000 acre wetland area is being used by the project to demonstrate how land can be farmed sustainably and is home to species such as Eurasian beaver and red poll cattle.
The show is crossing the Irish Sea for the first time with Gillian set to be based at Northern Ireland's only marine nature reserve, WWT Castle Espie, on the banks of Strangford Lough.
Meanwhile, Welsh TV presenter and naturalist Iolo Williams will be presenting live from the Scottish Highlands, which is home to numerous eagles and wild cats.
