THE URBAN JUNGLE – Last week I finished the programme I’m presenting in the series, The Urban Jungle. It’s 11 half hours, each one produced and filmed in a different British region, on wildlife in our cities. The series is due to be broadcast in August on BBC2.
We were filming the introduction and links to the documentary in Martin’s Pond, Nottingham: a perfect example of a wildlife haven in the city centre. In between takes I spotted a pair of coots with their nearly adult chicks, a moorhen building a nest, some damselflies and a group of long tailed tits performing acrobatics in the willows overhanging the pond.
