Just heard Springwatch will be returning on 30th May.
Chris and Michaela will be at Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk, with cameras and stories highlighting the diversity of wildlife in the area. Uniquely for this season, remote live cameras will be rigged on a bee colony, offering special insight into their society and hierarchy too.

Megan McCubbin will take viewers on a spring road trip across the North of England, travelling from wild Kielder Forest, to Hauxley Nature Reserve and then concluding her journey in Newcastle.

Finally, Iolo Williams is returning to one of his favourite wildlife havens of all time, the Isle of Mull, which is home to 22 pairs of white-tailed eagles and 30 golden eagle territories, as well as a wide range of marine life. Iolo will also immerse himself in the beauty of a wild meadow, meeting the invertebrates and small mammals that reside in it, and meet a local adder expert who has been collecting data on these snakes for more than a decade.

I love Wild Ken Hill but enough of East Anglia!

Surely there must be somewhere else in SW England, the Midlands, North England, Scotland, Wales that could accommodate Springwatch?

I think they should go European or go home: let's have Gibraltar storks and raptors, Biscay cetaceans, Fenno-Scandian mammal predators, Striped Hawk-moths and Vagrant Emperors, migrant bats and so on, along with the Northward greening of the continent.

Then hit the audience with ambelopoulia, Malta shooting, intensivisation of farming on traditional wildlife havens, wolf culling and so on.

If not, then the rule for the next series should be: not one species we've featured previously.

I think Iolo should go somewhere else other than Mull. How many more times do we need to see White Tailed Eagles? What about The Outer Hebrides or something
