End of week one...

Stephen Moss | 10:12 UK time, Thursday, 30 October 2008

It's Thursday morning, and in what seems like a blink of an eye, we are almost halfway through our current run of Autumnwatch. Already we've seen some truly astonishing sights - Gordon's baby seal pup braving the waves, Simon playing the guitar (and showing us some fabulous secrets about Fallow Deer and Muntjac), and Bill and Kate's red squirrel assault course.

Tonight Simon will be back in Birmingham in search of another elusive mammal - the urban Otter. Simon knows more about tracking Otters than almost anyone, so hopefully he will at least be able to prove their presence, and maybe even find one during the live show.

Kate goes out to watch the Sika Deer on Brownsea, while Bill looks at one of the island's newer residents - the beautiful little egret. And of course Gordon and his team are still on the Farnes braving the elements along with those feisty little seal pups.

A|nd don;t forget there are lots of events you can do this weekend - as well as a wealth of autum,n wildlife to go and see - check out Breathing Places for details of things to do near where you live.

Oh - and as you saw on Wednesday night, Bill and Kate are being well fed!
