Springwatch 2011 continues - get involved
A week has flown by on Springwatch and already we've seen a great many things at the beautiful RSPB reserve at Ynys-hir. Last week we were graced with extraordinary live footage of beavers from Scotland, and this week, it's the turn of Skomer island, and its array of magnificent birds.
Closer to home, we've had the rare privilege of seeing the first osprey chicks in this region for 400 years. And closer still, our webcams have witnessed the rise of an owl chick called Bob, elusive badgers and a rare insight into what grass snakes do in private. Not to mention grasshopper warblers, dippers, sandpipers, herons and much more.
Along with this week's guest presenter Iolo Williams, we hope to bring you lots more exciting wildlife stories as they happen. And it's good that so many of you are along for the ride, telling us your own wildlife stories, sharing your photos and uploading your videos. You will keep them coming in, won't you? Here's how...
- On the blog: the team have been 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 (right now we're looking for your barmiest nests)
- Messageboard: we have three different forums where you can chat about UK wildlife, about the webcams (the place where our barn owl chick got his name!) 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
- Upload your wildlife home movies
