BBC Winterwatch - LIVE Wildlife Cameras

Winterwatch 2022 will air on BBC Two from Tuesday 18th to Friday 28th January. It will air every evening, Tuesdays to Fridays, at 8pm.



Winterwatch 2023 will bring viewers two very different live wildlife hubs and stream live cameras across our digital platforms.

In Norfolk with Chris and Michaela, we’ll be deploying our cameras across the estate’s range of habitat. The winter rains have brought life back to the grazing marsh and the waterfowl and waders will provide a seasonal spectacle. The remote thermal camera will be deployed to bring us incredible scenes, allowing us to watch the behaviour of Wild Ken Hill’s cast of nocturnal characters.

We’ll be seeing how the beavers maintain their dam in the winter now the water levels have risen and hope that their pond continues to deliver to be the exceptional raptor-fest it’s been for us so far with goshawks, sparrowhawks and buzzards seen regularly. The bird feeders are sure to be busy throughout too, with an array of garden and farmland birds visiting to see them through the cold. We’ll also run a “mini” carcass camera in the hope we can tempt a hungry weasel or stoat out of hiding.

In Edinburgh we’ll have live cameras trained on a busy wild badger sett in the heart of the zoo. A badger family has been making its home at the zoo for more than a hundred years and we’re hoping to capture footage of these mustelids as they go about their wintery business. We’ll be witness to all the signs that the badgers are active from their latrines to scratching posts, from the areas they use for social interaction and to seeing the holes they make to increase the sett’s circulation.


Winter can be the most magical of all the seasons and, when the bare trees expose themselves, there’s an unrestricted view of the wildlife that call our countryside and cities home.

BBC Winterwatch returns to BBC Two from Tuesday 17 January at 8pm, and will deliver an extraordinary double helping of live programmes over two weeks.

The stories of this season will be revealed by presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan, live for their second winter from Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk, whilst Iolo Williams and Gillian Burke will be in one of the UK’s greenest cities - Edinburgh.

Cameras will be trained on a very active wild badger sett in the heart of Edinburgh Zoo whilst in England a multitude of live cameras will focus on the marshland and farmland of northwest Norfolk.

Winterwatch 2022 will air on BBC Two from Tuesday 18th to Friday 28th January. It will air every evening, Tuesdays to Fridays, at 8pm.
