Springwatch's final week - get involved
Another week on Springwatch has seen a procession of dramatic stories unfold...
We've had no end of drama on our live mini cams: from choking buzzard chicks to the sad demise of yet another clutch of pied flycatcher nestlings. On a more positive note, we've been blessed by the endearing sight of the mother buzzard sheltering her chick from the rain, and while the badgers have been elusive, brief sightings of fox cubs have made up for it. And who's couldn't enjoy the privileged view of a nest of grass snakes?
If all of that wasn't enough, we discovered the source of a mystery noise in the owl nest (with the Springwatch audience getting stuck into the process of elimination), and witnessed just how much character you can pack into a wood warbler nest.
Last week also saw our guest presenter Iolo Williams bringing us amazing stories from Skomer and its wealth of seabirds. There was no shortage of magical moments, including this sequence with an adorable puffling.
Our final week promises all manner of wildlife finds, from our live cameras in Mid Wales, to Liz Bonnin unearthing insights at a rubbish tip in Essex.
Of course as ever, we need you... your stories, your wildlife videos and photos and your questions. There's no shortage of ways to get in on the story:
- 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, or you have a wildlife question you'd like answered, then do post it on the blog.
- Messageboard: we have three different forums where you can chat about UK wildlife, about the webcams or about the show itself.
- 'Like' us on our Facebook page for news, chat and more.

With a bit of luck we've inspired you to get out and enjoy British nature for yourself. If we have, you can find nature events near you with the BBC's Things To Do website.
