The great thing about The Lancashire Wildlife Trust is that when we are in the spotlight our staff, our volunteers, our members and, most importantly, our wildlife shine like superstars.
However, asking wild creatures to perform on a particular day is a potential disaster waiting to happen.
We were asked by The Wildlife Trusts to come up with an idea for Countryfile’s Easter Sunday show. Chicks and fluffy bunnies had all been done before and, to be honest, our Brockholes chicks were not going to be around when filming took place.
One thing that has delighted staff and volunteers at the nature reserve, just off one of the busiest motorways in the UK, is that brown hares greet them on the car park in the early morning.
