Springwatch behind the scenes: Five days to go
Pretty much the whole of the Springwatch team is onsite at Ynys-hir now, from the wildlife cameramen to the caterers. The difference in atmosphere from when I was last here on Thursday couldn't be more pronounced as everyone makes last-minute preparations for the first rehearsal tomorrow and the first show on Monday.

The gallery, where the live show is directed
The production village: the centre of our world for the next three weeks
Hope you'll all be watching the first show on Monday. In the meantime, the messageboard is open for business, the photo group's filling up with stunning spring pics and there's loads more info about the show, the season and the wildlife righ here on this very blog.
Springwatch starts 8pm, Monday 30 May on BBC Two
Update 29 May: You can see some more Springwatch behind the scenes pictures on the BBC Mid Wales website.
