The study begins in the summer as Chris and the team test whether snails have a homing instinct and explore how some flowers use ultraviolet signals to attract insects for pollination.
‘Many people’s gardens are all about flowers and their nectar is food for numerous invertebrates. We show how bumblebees bite through plants to steal nectar without taking pollen,’ says Chris.
‘We also follow a motherless fox family where the dad carried on feeding the cubs.
The residents initially thought the foxes were noisy or pooed on the lawn, but by the end they
had fallen in love with them.’
