Real Springwatch 2024

7th June 2024

The Peak District Moorland Group is running its Real SpringWatch series again this year, showcasing the species nesting and feeding on managed moorland.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the group has recorded nestcam footage and the almost daily updates provide a fascinating insight into the behaviour, sights and sounds of moorland species and the many challenges they face – from predators to severe weather to battles over territory.

The updates are published regularly at 8pm, for a period of three weeks. By liking, sharing and following the Peak District Moorland Group on social media, we can all help to showcase the wildlife thriving on grouse moors and promote the vital work of moorland managers and gamekeepers.
