Springwatch 2011 has started - get involved!
Welcome back to a brand new series of Springwatch. The big news this year is of course that we have a new home: the stunning RSPB reserve Ynys-hir in Mid Wales. We're really excited to be at this wildlife haven. Already live on the webcams we've had barn owls, woodpeckers, osytercatchers, buzzards and redstarts... and we're expecting a whole lot more where they came from over the next three weeks.
Find nature events near you this weekend with the BBC's Things To Do website.

But Springwatch wouldn't be Springwatch without you the audience, so please do get involved - tell us your wildlife stories, ask us those questions that have always puzzled you, share your spring photos or just chat about the show. Here's how:
- On the blog: the team will be blogging regularly about our films, our big themes, our favourite photos, our contributors and more. So if you have an opinion about any of these, please post a comment there
- Messageboard: we have three different forums where you can chat about UK wildlife, about the webcams or about the show itself
- 'Like' us on our Facebook page for news, chat and more
- Share your photos of spring fauna and flora on our Flickr group
- Join in the conversation on Twitter with #springwatch
We really hope you enjoy the series. Join us!
Catch us on BBC Two at 8pm Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays (7.30pm Wednesdays followed by Unsprung)
