Stackpole welcomes Springwatch at Easter

The Easter special of the wildlife programme saw presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan, along with the camera team, explore the estate and wider Pembrokeshire for early signs of spring.

As the coast and countryside begin to burst into life and colour, Springwatch at Easter followed the diverse flora and fauna, the conservation stories behind the landscape and the volunteers who dedicate their time to looking after special places like Stackpole.

The Trust hosted a beach clean at Freshwater West as part of filming, working in partnership with Keep Wales Tidy, Marine Conservation Society, Natural Resources Wales and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Speaking about the programme, Mike Greenslade, the National Trust’s Manager of Stackpole, said: “Spring is when the estate truly comes alive and we hope that the show will help encourage more people to come and explore the landscape for themselves.”

You can watch Springwatch at Easter on catch up via the BBC website.
