The plant and animal kingdoms are starting to wake up to spring. In this podcast we look at some fascinating mating rituals of birds, animals and even trees. The humble hazel is one of the first trees to brighten the hedgerows at this time of year, we’ll find out why. And we look at the most graceful spring time double act – the ritual courtship dance of great crested grebes. Plus our Great Moment with Nature is a close encounter with one of Britain’s favourite mammals.
