BBC Autumnwatch in Lancashire
Autumnwatch returns to BBC Two at the end of October. Across four days, from Tuesday 29 October to Friday 1 November, Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games follow the stories of the UK's wildlife in autumn, broadcasting live from a new location on the coast of Lancashire in the North West of England.
Autumn is a key time of change. The series will examine how the unpredictable nature of the UK's weather can dramatically affect our wildlife. Collaborating with the BBC Weather Centre Autumnwatch will feature weather updates throughout the series giving audiences a weather report for wildlife, which will cover topics such as how winds in the North Sea affect migrating birds crossing from Scandinavia, and how falling temperatures influence the changing of colours for leaves. Autumnwatch will also showcase the beauty and drama of this diverse season, exploring nature’s key events and wild spectacles as well as explaining why this season is such a critical time for all of the UK’s wildlife.
Autumnwatch will react to stories as they happen, and report on the latest wildlife news from across the country. The series will be a truly multi-platform, round the clock, streaming wildlife action live on the web and on BBC Red Button. This year Autumnwatch aims to be more interactive than ever inspiring everyone to share their stories, photos and videos, and get outdoors to enjoy the season for themselves.
