For this years BBC WinterWatch ptarmigans weren’t the only thing that could be seen flying in the sky over the Scottish Highlands. During the week-long show CineFlite pilot Jack Johnston was filming aerial shots to give audiences a birds-eye view of the freezing landscape. There were many great moments caught from the air, with original shots featured each day as well as appearing in the opening and closing credits of the show. It was first time WinterWatch has featured drone filming like this but based on the positive response we really hope to be able to bring you more wildlife aerial footage in the future.
BBC WinterWatch is available to view for a limited time on BBC iPlayer.
