Where’s the BBC Two series Winterwatch filmed in 2014?

The main filming location for this years live broadcasts is the Cairngorm Mountains, in the east of the Scottish Highlands.

This area was chosen by the BBC for the 2014 series of Winterwatch, largely due to it being one of the coldest places in the United Kingdom. It’s believed the shows producers had made this choice in the hope of Cairngorm receiving some snowfall just before, or during the four nights of broadcasting.

However, due to Britain’s wet but unseasonably mild temperatures this winter, any significant covering of snow currently looks unlikely. UPDATE, it’s actually started snowing during the broadcast of Tuesday nights show.

In addition to the shows main Cairngorm base, each episode also features multiple, pre-recorded segments from around the UK including Brighton and the Caledonian Forest.

Winterwatch 2014 which is hosted by Chris Packham, Martin Hughes-Games and Michaela Strachan, airs for four nights on BBC Two from Monday the 20th to Thursday the 23rd of January.

    Frogspawn – two batches this morning, will protect from frost and feed tadpoles again.

    30th January 2014, our back garden pond in Poole, Dorset saw the first healthy batch of Frogspawn with three healthy looking adult frogs in the pond. 1st February more frogspawn added to the first batch. Last year frogspawn arrived mid February at top of the pond water. Freezing weather arrived and how clever mother nature is, the frogspawn dropped to the bottom of the pond for protection from the frosts and all survived. I fed the hundreds of tadpoles on dried fish foods from our local wilkinsons store in Poole. We have a family of foxes visit our road and area every night. We have a hedgehog been spotted out and about in our garden and I leave it some of our cat food. Now and again we see the grey squirrel on our fat balls bird feeder and I also put peanuts out for it.
