Well, we come to the end of Autumnwatch 2012 and as always we're keen to know what you thought.

We feel genuinely privileged to have been here in the Scottish Highlands with unique access to watch animal behaviour, particularly from some of our rarest and illusive animals - the pine marten, and of course beavers, otters, badgers and many more.


We've also seen how animals everywhere around the UK are preparing for autumn and winter.

We're back in January with 4 more live shows - Winterwatch, hoping to discover how winter is affecting wildlife around the UK.

    I loved every minute of Autumnwatch and, as always, would have liked more programmes, but I do like the four consecutive evenings format. It would be lovely to have Unsprung after every programme, but loved the chaos of the last Unsprung with the Pub Quiz! I was especially enthralled by the footage of the beavers and the red squirrels, but all the animals featured were wonderful including the three presenters! The Live Web Cams were superb.

    Holly. I agree with many of the comments made re the excellent show last week, content, filming all perfect. However, I feel you have ignored the MANY people who were infuriated by the inability of your team to have researched the proper pronunciation of basic words such as Loch, (NOT LOCK) Moor (NOT MOAR/MORE) and Capercaillie (NOT KAYPER-KAY-LEE) consequently your presenters have annoyed a large number of viewers. Why did you not simply ask the locals or your Scottish presenters to help with some diction lessons? I called Aigas centre twice last week, to be told on both occasions they had been inundated with complaints about the appalling diction and “….would be glad when the show is over” - their words. I think you owe it to your viewers and this blog to put the record straight as to why you and your team failed to nip this in the bud.

    Dear northern jock ...could not agree more .....there were irritating basic errors including, but not exclusively, to do with pronunciation. Plus we had too much mileage of the presenters.....check Countryfile ...they do it better.

    That said I still liked the prog....frankly it's just that they could do it a whole lot better

    Another great series. Chris the standout presenter as always. Have to agree with others comments re: "pub quiz" on Unsprung. This was chaotic and did not make good television. Almost caused us to hit the off button. Please can you try and avoid similar "dumbing down" in future?

    PS As I type this, just seen our first ever Jay on the bird feeders in our back garden. Wonderful!

    Too short and unsprung was a waste of time. Somebody should teach Martin how to laugh instead of wheezing, but not Jimmy Carr.
