Unsprung: Get involved now
Springwatch is approaching fast... the office is a hive of frantic activity. Now then - as ever - please may we request your help?
Last year we initiated the search for Britain's Barmiest Bird Nest, won by those pioneering blue tits who nested in the rotating arm of the train level crossing - remember them?! And the incredible collared dove in the (active) car wash came a close second.
I'm afraid those two are going to be very hard to beat, but we're going to try. So if you know of any extraordinary nest sites please, please let us know. If you can film it that's even better. And if you find an absolutely incredible nest that we simply mustn't miss and you can't film it yourself, just let us know and if we can, we might try to get a crew out to you.
Let's see if any birds choose an even barmier (is that a word?) nest site this year, than those dizzy blue tits. Thank you!
Unsprung will be a bit different this year with just one programme a week on Fridays. We are going to try our one or two new things, without losing the essential main theme, which is responding to your questions and showing your videos and pictures. We thought we would have a short "Wildlife Myth busting" section - you know, like "can a swan really break your arm?" and "Do dock leaves really stop nettle stings hurting?" that sort of thing. We would really like YOUR myth busting questions - what myths would you like us to put to the test - to try to "bust" or perhaps discover, to our amazement, that they are actually true? All your thoughts and suggestions gratefully received...
Update 19 May: The first Unsprung has moved and it's now LIVE. Catch it straight after the main show at 9pm Thursday 3 June, BBC Two.
Update 5 June: Thanks for all your questions so far. We answered as many as we could on Thursday's Unsprung (which you can watch again). Please keep your questions coming in.
