Your thoughts on this year's Autumnwatch

Tim Scoones Tim Scoones | 20:16 UK time, Friday, 20 November 2009

I hope you've enjoyed Autumnwatch, which this year spanned the whole season. I've been amazed at how much wonderful wildlife the UK has been able to offer us. In order to bring you this range of autumn treats, we changed the shape of the series to one show a week. Have you liked this change? (And before you ask, don't worry, the shape of Springwatch will be staying the same as it ever was...)

This wasn't the only change from last year. This year, the series began with us starting the show at 9pm, but we heard from some of you that this wasn't working for family viewers among others ... so when an opportunity arose in the schedule, our colleagues at BBC TWO brought the start time forward to 8.30pm. How does that feel now ?

Finally, Autumnwatch 2009 saw the advent of Unsprung on BBC TWO, not on Red Button, and running for a full 30 minutes. Was this a good move ?

So... what did you like? What did you dislike? What would you like to see more - or less - of? Please let us know by posting a comment below. After all, it's your show.

On behalf of the whole team, I want to thank you for joining us this autumn. We've really enjoyed making the series (though many of us could do with a little lie down for a while now ...!) We all hope you've enjoyed the journey with us through the whole season, from summery orchards in late September to wintery mountains in late November.

Don't forget that, although the webcams have finished and the messageboards shut down soon, the rest of the website will be staying live with migration news on the blog, ideas for stuff to do over the winter and of course your chance to upload your best nature videos. If you ever need to get a bit of wildlife into your winter and you are looking for inspiration, think of us and this website. And if you've seen something amazing, tell us on the blog. We love hearing from you, and the videos, photos and questions you've been sending in have been truly amazing. Thank you.

Keep an eye out in the TV schedules for our 90 minute Springwatch Christmas Special sometime in the festive season. And do please help look after our wonderful wildlife until we see you again for Springwatch.

Tim Scoones is Executive Producer, Autumnwatch
