Yes it’s that time of year again, although if you think that it has come somewhat early then you’re right!
This Autumnwatch also sees a new format with a once a week programme over the next two months starting next Friday 2nd October on BBC2 at 9.00pm. Note the later time, and it’s being repeated on Saturday tea-time.
There will the usual line-up of presenters with Simon King, Kate Humble, Chris Packham, Gordon Buchanan and Martin Hughes-Games.
Glo (Porcelain Rose) celebrated her 200th post earlier this week with an entry about killer whales that friends of hers recently saw over in Vancouver! By co-incidence Gordon Buchanan will be tracking these magnificent creatures in the North Sea, which promises to be one of the series highlights.
As always there’s the excellent, informative and interesting Autumnwatch website for news updates, blogs, webcams, messageboards, photo sharing, home movies, links to other UK wildlife websites and video clips from the BBC Natural History Unit archives.
If anyone uses the messageboard you’ll find me there as LawnLounger!
Autumnwatch Unsprung is being shown immediately afterwards, at 10.oopm on BBC2, in which Martin Hughes-Games chairs an audience led informal discussion and debate show.
Have a good weekend!
