Springwatch at Sherborne Park at Lodge Park and Sherborne Estate

This year the Sherborne Park Estate has once again been home to BBC Two's Springwatch.

Watch out for wild friends old and new – from barn owls and little owls, to bats, farmland birds and maybe even the elusive otters. 

Springwatch was broadcast on BBC Two Monday 28 May to Thursday 14 June.
