As part of the BBCs Summer of Wildlife Campaign, we have helped the BBC in producing a Wildlife Special thats airs this Thursday at 7pm on BBC One.

Urban Jungle is a special programme revealing the wide variety of wildlife that can be seen and enjoyed in our towns and cities.

David Lindo, aka The Urban Birder, takes to the water for a unique urban safari around Salford Quays. He then heads into Manchester to explore the wildlife living in the country's biggest municipal cemetery in Chorlton before joining a bat-watch in a Platt Fields park. David goes on the trail of hedgehogs and badgers in Warrington and finds a colony of birds with an unusual nesting site in the middle of town.

Sounds like something keen wildlife enthusiasts will not want to miss!
