Unsprung needs your help!
Were here! At Ynys-hir. I rode up on a bike yesterday from Somerset - I had forgotten just how extraordinarily beautiful Wales is.. . Nearly fell off at one point - the sky was suddenly thick with red kites - I've never seen anything like it. I pulled over and counted over 50 in the air at the same time - an amazing sight .
Me and the Unsprung team - Sam and Level-headed Joe
You must be getting used to my "help!" blog post every Springwatch.. but... er HELP!! UNSPRUNG is on Wednesdays this year (at 8.30pm) and - as you know - it totally depends on your questions, your observations, your photos and home movies for it to be a success. Level-headed Joe, Sam and I are sitting here in the tent, glued to the messageboard, running through everything you are talking about. YOU drive UNSPRUNG so please, get typing, tweeting (#springwatch) and commenting on the blog right now and together we can make this year's Unsprung the best ever.
Also - we love STUFF... so if you have something amazing that you have found and think Chris or Kate might be able to interpret (not too smelly please) or you have made something you'd like to show the world - you can send it in. We already have the latest, beautiful "springtime" tea cosy knitted by LYNNE HARDMAN especially for the programme - thank you so much Lynn! So here is an address for "things": BBC Springwatch, Broadcasting House, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR.
Thank you in advance - right - back to the messageboard... what's come in... ahh what's this?.. a question about stag beetles! Chris and I will love that...
Editor's note: thanks for all your comments here. Sorry we couldn't answer them all on Unsprung. We'll do our best to answer as many as we can here on the website. In the meantime we've shut comments on this post to keep it manageable. So if you have anything for Unsprung please post it on our new one.
