Catch Wytham Woods on Countryfile on 5 November

Marley Fen

Earlier in October, the BBC Countryfile team returned once more to Wytham Woods to film for an upcoming episode, part of the 12-month Wild Britain initiative aimed at galvanising support for saving the UK’s endangered wildlife.

Ellie Harrison and Hamza Yassin visited the Woods to find out about the many species that call them home, with the latter climbing into their canopy to learn more about the complex woodland ecosystem and the impact that ash dieback is having. The team also visited other sites in the area including Boundary Brook Nature Reserve in East Oxford.

The episode will air at 5.15pm on Sunday 5 November, and you can watch it on iPlayer at any time after that.
