A still from the Channel 5 series

A team of award-winning specialists spent a year recording the wildlife of a Scottish national park in a series that begins next week.

Loch Lomond: a Year in the Wild is a four-part documentary series, the first episode of which is due to screen on Channel 5 next Tuesday.

Tigress Productions used specialist slow-motion and ultra-high-definition cameras to capture some of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park’s species. They also employed mini-cams, drones and underwater filming to produce the programme.

The series starts with spring, which arrives early after a merciless winter in which only the toughest survived.

Golden eagles, mountain hares, pregnant deer and migrating ospreys are among the wildlife to feature, and the programme also follows the courtship displays of black grouse.

The first episode will be broadcast on Tuesday 10 November at 8pm on Channel 5.
