OU on the BBC: Saving Species: Series 3, Episode 16
In the bleak midwinter, the days are short and nights are long—so how does our native wildlife survive in light of diminishing food reserves?
For this Saving Species, Brett Westwood heads off into the winter landscape to discover more about the conservation work being done to understand the needs of our wildlife at this time of year.
Also in the programme:
- News from around the world with regular news reporter, Kelvin Boot
- An update on the activities of the Open University's iSpot. A new iSpot app has been launched, making it possible to photograph wildlife, upload it to iSpot and get help with identifications while you’re still out in the field.
