Martin Hughes-Games wants to get you more involved in Autumnwatch 2009
Our very own hairy biker - and relative newbie to our presenter team - Martin Hughes-Games returns to our screens for our re-shaped and re-formatted Autumnwatch 2009. Martin has made a series of films aimed at inspiring us to get ever deeper involved with wildlife.
An avid and passionate wildlife enthusiast himself, the producer-turned-presenter has been busy over the past few weeks, finding out how to get into all sorts of interesting and rewarding wildlife activities. These not only get us closer to nature but may also help make a difference to science or conservation efforts to help our native wildlife.
From bat detecting to bird ringing and from building homes for wildlife to finding out about ancient knowledge of medicinal plants, Martin will show us just how fascinating, and fun, it can be to take a passion for wildlife a step further.
The Autumnwatch website will have all the relevant information and advice to make this possible for you too, by connecting you to our huge network of wildlife organisation partners and all the great stuff that you can join in with. Check out our In Depth section where there will be more and more useful stuff as the series progresses.
Comment on the bottom of the blog posts to add your own experiences, insights, tips and tricks. We'd make Martin a happy man if everyone does something wild this autumn!
As well as showing us his films, Martin will again be on hand, live with Chris and Kate at our Friday night base, to report on what you, the viewers, have been seeing, saying and asking during the week.
Martin will also again be chairing Autumnwatch Unsprung, our informal-to-the-point-of-slightly-bonkers, audience-led, interactive live discussion programme, which now follows the main show on BBC Two for half an hour.
Go on, get stuck in! The series - and the season - are all yours...
