A new series of Autumnwatch returns shortly to BBC Two but launches first on Red Button on Sunday 28th October.

Join the team as they stake out live in the Scottish Highlands, hoping to spot beavers, pine martens, red squirrels and lots of other local wildlife. Between 7am and midnight, we'll have live commentary on our live cameras from broadcasters and wildlife experts Chris Sperring and Euan McIlwraith, with text commentary running through the night.

When Red Button makes way for other programmes, you can continue to watch all the action 24 hours a day at bbc.co.uk/autumnwatch until the close on Friday 2nd November.
