Springwatch comes to Sherborne!

The secrets out…Springwatch is back, and this year it’s based at Sherborne Park, Cotswolds. Home to water voles, red kites and flocks of rare farmland birds like corn buntings and yellowhammers and also home to Bensons!

The BBC Two show, presented by Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan, Martin Hughes-Games and Gillian Burke, will be filmed at their brand new location, after three years at a nature reserve in Suffolk, RSPB, Minsmere.

As tenants of the Sherborne Estate, we are delighted to welcome the presenters and BBC film crew and we cant wait to see what’s going on in all of the bat and bird boxes that they have been setting up over the last few months!

Springwatch begins at 8pm, 29 May, on BBC2. Springwatch Unsprung, which will also be set on the Sherborne Park Estate, begins at 6:30pm, 5 June, also on BBC2.
