...that was Springwatch 2012. What did you think?
Somehow, that's almost us for another year. And it's been eventful one and we feel genuinely privileged to have experienced it.
We were at the heart of a Welsh storm and watched, first hand, how wildlife is affected by an extreme weather event, while our own production site was flooded and abandoned.
We've seen predator attacks from a weasel, a mink, a woodpecker and a cat.
We do try to move things forward each year on Springwatch too.
This year we made a concerted effort to make the TV show feel fresh and re-energized. We've tried, wherever possible, to put more of the wildlife we know you love on screen and to offer you a greater breadth of different species. We tried to go deeper into the lives of some species, such as peregrine falcons, kingfishers and otters.
We've also tried to bring you more mammals and revel in the unsung heroes of our native wildlife both on our live cameras and on the show, such as earthworms, moles, mammal stump and butterflies emerging.
In the past, Springwatch has had a second live location but this year, in some programmes, we chose not to do this. This meant we were able to allocate more time and effort into live cameras around our base at Ynys-hir. It would be interesting to hear if you missed this element at all?
Sometimes things don't go so well for the animals we're following. This year has been particular bleak at times, with the extreme weather and a number of predations that have taken place, all part of nature taking it's course. We feel it always right to show you exactly what happens even when, at times, it makes for emotional and hard viewing.
On the web this year, we teamed up with the BBC Nature team to bring the webcams with a news-style commentary system. We were also able to bring the webcams onto the Red Button for 20 hours a day for our first week (before jubilee and football events pushed us off the schedules).
We try to post a range of blogs, which are helpful, interesting or examine a subject in more depth.
We're back with a Summerwatch special in August and with Autumnwatch. As ever it's always great to hear from you about what you enjoyed and what you'd like to see more of?
