Foxes

Duration: 58 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Scotland HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Scotland

Series following the goings on inside the Scottish SPCA’s wildlife rescue centre. Today the team have to act as mothers to a litter of orphaned fox cubs whose den was disturbed by a builder’s digger. We’ll follow the team as they raise this furry family and watch as they transform from tiny cubs into fully fledged foxes.

Centre manager Colin has an ingenious way of treating a swan who has become badly contaminated by oil using the sort of cleaning products you might well have knocking around at home.

The centre bid a fond farewell to Babe – their longest staying hedgehog – and we follow this prickly character’s release by placing camera traps in a wood to see how she gets on – with quite surprising results.

And there’s a surprise for the team as a nightjar – one of the UK’s least seen and strangest looking birds - is brought into the centre after being found on an oil rig. Show less
