Winterwatch web show - 9-30pm Monday

With snow falling across much of the UK, the timing is perfect for Winterwatch! Although at time of writing, where we are in the Highlands we've not seen the snow yet...

So the webcams are going live from 5pm today, the main show on BBC2 at 8-30pm, but we thought we'd try something new for Winterwatch.

Introducing Winterwatch Extra. Simply head on over to the webcams as the main show finishes on BBC2 (9-30pm tonight) and join Scottish outdoors expert Euan Mcilwraith and guests.

We don't really know where Euan will be taking us – but we'll have webcams, beavers on ice, waxwing shopping preferences, quizzes, chat and anything else you'd like to see.

Drop you ideas and questions below and hope to see you at 9-30pm.

    For a few nights over the last two weeks we have heard foxes screeching as we know it is the mating season. We are in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, a residential area which has been populated by foxes for several years now, but on Saturday we discovered a dead fox in our back garden, lying under a tree. Foxes com into our garden regularly, summer and winter, and seem to be unfazed by our presence, not that we encourage them, of course. Environmental Health Department collected the body today (Monday). Question is that dead wild animals are not often seen outside - or are they? If this is more common than I would think, where do they go?

    We have a pair of stoats nesting under a big tree stump in the garden. We have some amazing video footage that a friend has taken with special cameras of them feeding on chicken tied to something. We have also spotted a white one around but not caught on camera yet. We would be happy to have you film them here. We live in Collace near Perth scotland.

    I'm currently watching Winterwatch, and mention was made of Waxwings. I just had to tell you that I had the privilege of seeing a group of 60 Waxwings (yes, several of us bird-watchers did count!) sitting in a tree, at the Jubilee River Nature Reserve, in Buckinghamshire, near Dorney lake. They were lovely to watch; fearless, and gorging on rosehips. Just lovely!
