Scoot! Working on scooters is a joy; super intriguing to smart marine mammals, who love riding on their bow wave underwater! They’re a faff for diving, but Freediving on them is bliss-you don’t need to fin etc, so are not using energy and can stay under for an eternity! @SkyUK
Tonight, head underwater with @SteveBackshall! Go on a journey to discover where shark mothers give birth and learn how we can help protect a new generation of these ocean giants in “Expedition With Steve Backshall— Socorrow: Expedition Shark Island” at 9 CT.

The most life-affirming part of Indian Ocean filming was working with @Bluemarinef to give local kids their first swim on the reef, for some their first time in the sea; maybe to launch a lifelong love of the ocean. @BBCOne @KalyaniLodhia #ourchangingplanet
That’s pretty cool. (Though I’m guessing the horse and snow leopards are the main attraction 🐴)…i
Top tip: sunscreen. At breakfast apply bonding sunscreen (20mins before sun exposure) EVERYWHERE; helps if they decide to throw all their clothes off! Use conventional sunscreen thru the day and don’t rub in too much. Screen you can see like zinc is good for noses @Helenglovergb
You’re the best you two! Thanks so much for being involved! Sb and HG…
The female sperm whale known as ‘can opener’ hung with us for hours, bringing her tiny calf over to us, introducing it to its first humans. their coda acoustics throbbed through our bodies, a bit like sitting on a cow fence! In Supergiant Animals on @BBCTwo right now @BBCiPlayer

Giant tiger shark in the shallows; A dark shape popped up behind the boat; With a super strong team behind us, I came nose to nose with this beautiful nosey tiger shark… thanks to @skytv @truetonatureuk I cannot believe this sequence didn’t even make the series!!!

That’s amazing news you all!!!! Congratulations sb…
Thames terrapin, for 8 years since I moved Thameside, I’ve been hearing about a terrapin who basks on the same log on an island upstream. I’ve had odd encounterswith invasive species; a Capybara Hambledon, a coati going through Marlow bins, I wonder what this fella’s story is?
Wildlings is a self-help manual for parents in need of outdoor ideas @Helenglovergb and I can't wait to see what you're inspired to do. It will be released 7th July but is available to pre-order now at all book retailers.
How Dyu get training in with wee kids in tow? Improvise!!!
Feel what the wave is doing, accept its energy. Get in sync then charge with it… @Helenglovergb @EpicKayaksInc @MontyHalls
It’s not often when paddling at sea you look down at your watch and see 16kph as your speed!!! With wind and tide behind us, we were rocketing along, surfing seals skimming alongside us. Some gnarly tide races, but only got the camera out when it was flat! @EpicKayaksInc
I’m so chuffed with this shot. Not only is it the best kingfisher I’ve ever got, but all three kids with on me! a little girl sat on my feet making daisy chains and two others behind squelching goose poo between their toes!

Our family holiday was the perfect opportunity to road test my MW range, and I’m super chuffed at the results! They’re comfy, cool, wash up well even after chocolate and pasta stains, and most importantly the bear cubs love them-Job done! @MountainWHouse
My happiest days are ‘herping’, clambering over boulders searching for snakes n lizards. This morning Logan and I had our first proper herp together, and returned scratched, scraped and wide eyed happy. I may have a disciple… one down, two more to go… @Helenglovergb
Wow! So chuffed to see this! Good luck for everyone at @SharkTrustUK…
