AAAAAND re­lax, as the best look­ing of all the year’s Watches re­turns for its an­nual survey of the melan­choly splen­dours of the sea­son. Pre­sen­ters Chris Pack­ham, Michaela Stra­chan and Martin Hughes Games have set up home again in their glo­ri­ous base at the Na­tional Trust’s Sher­borne Park Es­tate in the Cotswolds, to catch up with the var­i­ous bad­gers, barn owls and ot­ters we last saw in Spring­watch, and in­tro­duce us to whole host of new faces near and far – in­clud­ing a fam­ily of ur­ban foxes liv­ing on the south coast, be­ing spied on by Gil­lian Burke, who is out to put them through some sneaky in­tel­li­gence tests. The se­ries con­tin­ues nightly un­til Thursday; look out on Wed­nes­day for some worms. Mean­while, there’s more go­ing on via the BBC’s Red But­ton chan­nel, where you can find a se­lec­tion of wildlife films from across this year’s Watch, in­clud­ing the busy beavers of Corn­wall, the rare sum­mer mi­grants to Not­ting­hamshire, and the work of broth­erly wildlife il­lus­tra­tors Richard and Ian Lew­ing­ton.
