Since moving to the countryside, Britain’s most beloved camp comedian Julian Clary has become passionate about nature. In a brand new adventure, he goes in search of Britain’s most fanatical wildlife lovers, affectionately referred to as his ‘Nature Nuts’.
 
Julian travels all over the UK for the three-part series, discovering an extraordinary range of nature fans obsessed by the creatures in their backyards and beyond.  Julian and his expert film crew, boasting some of the UK’s most talented natural history cameramen and women, play fairy godmother to our Nature Nuts by capturing sight of their favourite creatures in ways they’ve never seen before.
 
With some of the best new technology including starlight, high speed, mini aerial and underwater cameras, the Nature Nuts are given once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch their favourite animals in their natural habitat.
 
Jam-packed with Julian’s trademark humour, Nature Nuts is full of great characters and fantastic wildlife footage.  Each week Julian meets a group of Nature Nuts and finds out about a wealth of wonderful wildlife species living in Britain.
 
In this final episode, Julian waves goodbye to the West End and ventures into the wilds of Yorkshire in search of an artist whose intricate paintings are inspired by his snaps of the surrounding wildlife.
 
Nature Nut Robert Fuller’s latest muse is the kestrel and he’s been trying to capture one in flight for some time, so Julian asks award-winning cameraman John Waters to step in. John’s high-speed equipment is just the ticket, it can record 1500 frames per second, with ordinary cameras managing just 25. 
 
Julian remarks: “It is, quite frankly, the Beyoncé of the camera world.” 
 
Next, it’s up to the Scottish Highlands for a bathroom disco with a female fish-packer in pursuit of the elusive pine martin.
 
Muirne Buchanan lives on Loch Torridon, 300 miles north of the Scottish border and her garden happens to be inhabited by these cat-sized cousins of the badger and the weasel. 
 
With just 3,000 left in the UK, they’re a rare sight and it’s up to John to get the sharp-toothed fellas on film. But, will they care for the custard creams that Julian and Muirne have so carefully laid out for them?
 
Finally, our fairy godmother heads to Perth to catch up with Bob Smith, ‘The Beaver Man’, on a canoe. This Nature Nut has been hoping to see a baby beaver, also known as a kit, and Julian won’t stop until they’ve got the evidence they need to rest assured that this furry family’s lineage will continue.
