Episode 2

Colin joins forces with 'batman' Conor Kelleher to go hunting for the nocturnal creatures and teams up with shark-spotter Colin Barnes in West Cork.

Having heard that basking sharks have been seen near Union Hall in West Cork, Colin teams up with veteran shark-spotter Colin Barnes for a closer look at these extraordinary creatures. Armed with only his underwater camera, Colin dives into a plankton-bloom to observe the enormous sharks as they feed.

Colin joins forces with bat-expert Conor Kelleher on the trail of horse-shoe bats whose woodland hunting ground has been earmarked for a new bypass road. Their attempts to radio-track the tiny animal quickly turn into a frantic night-time game of follow-my-leader through the woods. But will they be able to prove that bats have more of a right to be here than bulldozers?
