The team at Wildland were delighted last year when the BBC confirmed that they would be visiting the Cairngorms National Park to film and broadcast live the popular Winter, Spring and Autumnwatch series in 2019. Currently the Springwatch programme can be viewed on TV channel BBC2 and catchup is also available on BBC iPlayer.
From their base at the Dell of Abernethy, the Springwatch team have been out and about at different locations across the Cairngorms National Park, including Wildland’s very own Glenfeshie Estate.
Glenfeshie has been at the heart of Wildland’s conservation restoration and preservation programme and we are delighted to have the opportunity to show off this majestic landscape and the results – to date – of this huge landscape scale conservation project and also our partnership in the Cairngorms Connect project.
Glenfeshie is a special and remarkable place. It is also a landscape of extreme contrasts, ranging from high mountain tops down to the lower valleys where the magnificent braided River Feshie flows. The estate is home to ancient and new native forests and is home to a vast array of plants and wildlife; some of which are endangered or protected species and can only be found within the Cairngorms National Park.
The highly skilled camera team have captured some amazing footage and images using hidden cameras, long lenses and live footage of our wonderful wildlife. Some of our favourites have included a grey wagtail nesting by the river and a pine marten running along the riverbank in daylight!

Autumnwatch will return later in 2019 and we can’t wait to view the diverse local wildlife preparing for another Scottish winter amidst the stunning Autumn colours.
