Its a four seasons programe on Polar bear lira and her cubs, which now are growing fast. They lost her but luckily they collared her so found her again.

Some scary moments.

I watched some but for me it got a bit too emotional and spoilt it.

Very interesting programme, but keeps making references to 'Climate Change' as though we have something to do with it. Lira seems to have a problem that the other bears encountered don't have. They find food, she doesn't. icon_scratch

I should imagine Polar Bears were one of Britain's most common animal 12 to 15,000 years ago, now extinct from here, but have 1000s new species instead.

That was last nights ending,

Apparently one last message from the tracker found her at the Whale so dunno as I caught it late.

They're doing three seasons so maybe a last meal before hibernation Conifers....Autumn, or summer maybe one of those. Very fortunate finding a dead Whale.. :lol:

Though not too difficult to find . . . they're a bit whiffy* icon_aaargh , and Polar Bears have got very good noses . .
