In today’s exciting programme we are going to watch a reintroduction scheme for the rare Torsion Spring. These springs were once common on garage doors all over the world but after a series of breakages they have become rare.

Young Torsion Springs for the reintroduction scheme have been taken from a thriving colony on eBay. As you can see from Garry’s film handling Torsion Springs is very dangerous and only A licence Springers should attempt to handle them.

Another film has come in from Japan in which Steve Backshall enjoys a natural Hot Spring. Springwatch apologises for the noisy birds in the video which we understand are Whooper Swans and are in need of a culling with all that honking and crapping every, still we hope they don’t spoil you Spring entertainment.
