Get involved online with Springwatch 2012!
Well it's that time of year again and Springwatch wouldn't be Springwatch without you, the audience. So here's how you can get involved...
On the blog: the team will be blogging regularly about our films, our big themes, our favourite photos and more. So if you have any opinions or stories of your own about these, please share them with us by commenting. Martin has already put in a request for your questions and stories for Unsprung.
The Springwatch webcams will be returning very soon, to bring you an amazing inside view into the daily struggles of our wildlife families for no less than 20 hours a day. We're also excited to be unveiling a new rolling commentary, which will feature your comments and tweets, as well as up-to-date information and insights about what's really happening on screen. Those of you who follow live BBC Sport and News events online will be familiar with it.
And in another exciting first for us, you'll be able to watch the Springwatch Webcams on Red Button from Sunday 27th May to Friday 1st June.
We went super social last year by stepping into Facebook and now over 37,000 of you have joined us there. You don't have to have a Facebook account to see what's going on, but if you do have one you can 'comment' and 'share' our stories with your friends or 'like' the Springwatch page and updates.
One change this year is that with everything else on offer, messageboards have been phased out - partly as our use of social media, like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr is growing so fast. And also as we will have plenty of specific blogs you can put comments on which will help make discussions more focussed and easy to find.
The Springwatch photo group on Flickr now holds over 180,000 of your stunning wildlife photos. Chris Packham is impressed. Need we say more. You can take a look at these glorious images by browsing the group, or if you want to get involved, upload and share your own - we can never have enough. All levels of photography are welcome and we'll be showing some of our favourites on the show as well as on Red Button. It's also a great place to get tips and advice from other photographers and to get help with identifying the animals in your snaps.
And last but certainly not least, you can follow us on Twitter for the latest news and retweets from our crews out in the field. Check out @BBC_Springwatch or hashtag your tweets with #springwatch and we'll be keeping an eye out for them.
We can't wait for you to join us.
