Viewers of BBC Countryfile have expressed concern as popular presenter, Adam Henson, sparked worry during the latest episode. The show featured Margherita Taylor and Matt Baker visiting Trent Valley to highlight a significant project aimed at reversing industrialisation damage and encouraging wildlife back to their habitats.

On another note, Adam was seen discussing a fatal livestock disease impacting farms nationwide. Shortly into the programme, fans observed a small mark on Adam's face spurring comments on social media.

Many left warm wishes for the much-loved presenter. One concerned viewer wrote: "@BBCCountryfile I missed the start of today's programme what has poor Adam done to his face?"

Another spectator wrote: "Adam looks like he's developed a birthmark on his right cheek since his last appearance!" With another adding: "Has Adam been kicked in the face by a rare breed #Countryfile," reports the Express.

Adam discussed the trying times sheep farmers experience during lambing season, saying: "Spring is in the air, and for sheep farmers across the country, lambing is our busiest time of year with long hours and quite a lot of stress.

"But the overriding reward is seeing ewes and lambs out on the fresh green grass. But this year, there's been an added worry and concern for many sheep farmers, including myself. That's because the Schmallenberg virus spread by midges has been found across British farms.

"It can affect several livestock species, including sheep, cattle, and goats, and has devastating consequences for pregnancies in the animals, causing foetal deformities and stillbirths."

While some fans aired their concerns for Adam, others were unhappy with the content of the programme. One viewer wrote on social media: "Every week ! ! ! ..... everything is due to climate change .... A once great programme is just a @bbc propaganda nonsense.. why don't they look at the raw sewage pumped into rivers and seas with the blessing of the government... #Countryfile."


Another wrote: "Today's #Countryfile is a special Very Young CBeeBies edition, where every item is being presented in the most babyish voices and language, from sickly squeeing over beavers, to the woman who just described her germination work as making "baby trees"."


However, not everyone shared the same opinion as one fan wrote: "I'm addicted to the @BBCCountryfile 7-day forecast at this time on a Sunday evening."
