Jack Fincham goes bird-watching for new show

Jack Fincham is exploring his love of bird-watching on a new programme.

The "Love Island" winner - who triumphed on the ITV show with his girlfriend Dani Dyer - has teamed up with Springwatch's Chris Packham to do a spot of bird-watching for a new episode of BBC digital show "Nature Dates".

Jack said: "I've loved nature ever since I was a little kid. Nature Dates is a dream come true - walking around amazing areas and seeing all sorts of animals. This time Chris takes me round a nature reserve and helps me spot some really beautiful birds right in the heart of London. I'm hoping people follow my example and go and ask someone on a nature date - could be with a friend or someone they fancy. There's always something to talk about, and you can find romance in nature, you just have to get out there and look for it."

Whilst Chris added: "Going birding with newbies is always great - especially when they are as keen as Jack. He wasn't exactly a birding virgin though, he has quite a bit of knowledge but was desperate to see his first kingfisher. Luckily I delivered and he was delighted! Actually that's an understatement - he was delirious! A man who knows that the world's best birds are fully feathered!"

In the episode - which will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer, YouTube and social media from Wednesday February 13 - Jack and his childhood hero Chris explore London's Walthamstow Wetlands on the look out for cormorants, coots, and an elusive kingfisher.
