BBC Springwatch at Gosforth Park Nature Reserve

20th June 2011

In May TV presenters Chris Packham and Martin Hughes-Games visited Gosforth Park Nature Reserve in Newcastle to film wildlife for this year’s Springwatch show.  The crew filmed Noctule Bats leaving their roost, wonderful green ferns coming into leaf and Coral Root Orchid.  Chris Packham was particulary animated by the Coral Root Orchid, a rare plant that he had not seen before. 

The footage was screened on the last Springwatch show of the series on BBC2 on Thursday 16th June.
