Springwatch 2021 has returned to BBC Two and the presenters have spread themselves out across the UK this year. With new life being at the centre of the much-loved series, fans are keen to see the circle of life play out in front of their eyes. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about how to watch the live footage.
How to watch the BBC Springwatch 2021 live cameras
Fans were thrilled to see Springwatch return this week (May 25) and they can expect plenty of insight across the next three weeks.
Presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan are in Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk, with Iolo Williams in Scotland at the Alladale Wilderness Reserve.
Meanwhile, Gillian Burker is in Northern Ireland for the first time, at the WWT Castle Espie.
While fans love to watch the presenters on location during the BBC Two evening slot, they are keen to see more of the stunning wildlife.
They will be pleased to hear the live feed cameras will be rolling for 12 hours a day.
Starting from May 25, the cameras will give live updates right up until the series ends, on June 11.
Fans can watch the live feeds via the Springwatch website, as well as the show’s social media channels.
The live feeds are also available to watch on BBC iPlayer, as well as the network’s official YouTube channel.
The cameras start rolling at 10am each morning, and they will be turned off at 10pm in the evening.
A special multiview screen has been set up on the Springwatch website, so fans can watch from four locations at the same time.
Some beautiful birds can be seen, either protecting their nests or basking in the spring weather.
Thousands of viewers have already tuned in to watch the first of the live videos.
The latest post said: “Good morning and welcome to a second day of Springwatch live cameras! Today we’re hoping to see a kestrel chick hatch and hoping to see lots of other wonderful sights from Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk.”
One fan responded on Facebook: “Good morning all from North yorks. Loved seeing the hares, the deer and all of the wildlife last night. Very much looking forward to tonight’s episode.”
Another said: “Good morning all including all you wonderful camera and sound people. Loving the Swallow but I have to say the images of the brown hare last night on the show were amazing.”
The presenters have been providing plenty of interesting facts about some of the UK’s most stunning wildlife.
However, the live cameras provide incredible footage around the clock, highlighting the special moments the presenters may not see.
The synopsis for tonight’s episode, May 26, says: “Gillian Burke follows the fortunes of a harbour seal in hospital in Northern Ireland, while Iolo Williams is on the lookout for golden eagles in the Glen.
“Elsewhere, Michaela Strachan and Chris Packham assess the effects of this year’s late spring on our wildlife.”
If fans are unable to tune in live, the episodes are repeated the following day at 3.15pm on BBC Two.
Viewers have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 2021 series so far.
The official Twitter account for the series said: “A new series of #Springwatch means a brand new Watch List! Raising hands
“So break out your boots and dust off your camera to try and spot some of our favourite signs of spring!”
One fan responded: “Hallelujah! My favourite bit of telly. A nice bit of escapism and some positive news of what projects are succeeding and species recovery etc.
“Not to mention great footage and films. A drop of Malbec and my favourite chair, bring it on.”
Springwatch airs at 8pm on BBC Two.
