Natural World Elephants Without Borders on BBC2 tomorrow at 8.00pm is about the wanderings of elephants in Botswana. There are lots of endearing scenes of elephant herds, and the scientific bit tells us all about their remarkable memory. It’s being repeated next Monday on BBC2 at 7.00pm.
Next Wednesday sees the start of Nature’s Great Events a major new wildlife series on BBC1 at 9.00pm. 1/6. The Great Melt is all about the Arctic summer when the ice turns to ocean. It features unfamiliar narwhals, guillemots, artic foxes and ever popular polar bears.
As much as I’ve been moaning about the cold weather, especially when it’s wet and windy, I find it preferable to when it’s too hot as it’s been in Australia, which has had an unprecedented heatwave recently. Daffy sent me an email yesterday with some really cute pictures which had been sent to her by a friend of a friend out there. A little koala had walked into the back porch looking for a bit of relief from the heat. A bucket was filled up and this is what happened next!
Wherever you are stay cool or keep warm, and have a good weekend!
