Autumnwatch 2019

Just looked on the Autumnwatch website and I can confirm the new series will be starting on Tuesday 29th October.

I just found out over 1 hour ago, that for the first time for about 3-4 years approx there are live webcams on the BBC Autumnwatch website from the cameras from all over different parts of Abernethy, as well as on the BBC iPlayer and 1 webcam on YouTube. 1 of the webcams is a live multi screen of 9 or 10 cameras in different parts of Abernethy and 1 webcam that changes from time to time to give a full view from a selection of different cameras. I just found out late today as I’ve been out all day birdwatching somewhere local to where I live. The BBC stopped broadcasting live webcams on Autumnwatch and Winterwatch over 3-4 years ago approx and only Springwatch in recent years has had live wildlife webcams over the 3 week period of that series. But hopefully this might be a sign of things to come, like it used to be. When I last checked the Autumnwatch website yesterday, nothing was mentioned about this. So this is quite a pleasant surprise.
Ian.

Talk about dumbing down. I thought much of it was aimed at primary aged children. Surely most people know why we have seasons and the earth's axis being on a tilt? Ditto as to why leaves turn different colours in the autumn and fall?

As fast as knowledge is expanded, learning recedes as the plebs choose X-box, X-factor and 4X over Xpanding their minds.

Birders are an island of curiosity and cerebration in a sea of self-selected moronity. All those years of evolution and education totally wasted....

I recall a panel debate with Dawkins, who was asked about evolution today. He opined that we appearded to be in a period of de-evolution at the moment. Perhaps he was right!

I enjoyed Michaela's film chasing the Geese around. I do miss Unsprung

It was indeed very good. I particularly liked the pipistrelle song.

Just finished watching them yesterday. Very enjoyable. Can’t wait to get back up to Nethy in February.

Bear in mind that Michaela has to fly in from South Africa for her dumbing down sessions
