Love Island winner Jack Fincham was given a tutorial in birdwatching from Springwatch presenter Chris Packham.

The reality television star and the TV presenter visited Walthamstow Wetlands for a new wildlife programme called Nature Dates launched by the BBC.

The pair saw a number of birds during their time at the wetlands including a Kingfisher, gulls and a Peregrine.

Mr Fincham was often found admiring the Spanish wildlife at the Love Island villa in Mallorca.

He was joined by Mr Packham who provided him with a lesson on birdwatching.

Mr Fincham posted a photo of himself with Chris Packham yesterday.

He wrote: "How amazing is this selfie? I went on a Nature Date with one of my wildlife heroes Chris Packham and it was blinding.

"I've always been massively into British wildlife and I thought Chris Packham would be the perfect person to join me for a nature date.

"I used to sit at the edge of the pool during my time on Love Island and on these beanbags you'd have conversations with the girls where you were arguing and stuff. There was always drama on the beanbags. But I used to sit on them and watch the birds on over the mountains, the swifts and swallows eating off the pool, and birds of prey in the distance, and I used to love it."

During his time in the Love Island villa, Mr Fincham taught his fellow contestants about nature, including sharing facts about the migration patterns of swallows and the utility of polar bear fur.

The programme is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
