There will be a single programme covering autumn in New England (USA). Much like there was a Springwatch Japan special last year.


I would not imagine that it will replace the main UK live shows.

Well to me the announcement sounded like it was the regular Autumnwatch programme. So I wonder if they are replacing the regular Autumnwatch series, with just a 1 programme episode instead. Maybe if that does happen, itís because of further budget cuts at the BBC.

Well done Gillian you`'ve nicely answered your critics. You look much more relaxed and confident.

I got the impression it was the whole series, although Chris said a one off... confused!

It airs on the 15th October which is when Autumnwatch usually starts.

I'll be disappointed if it is only from the US, one of the main reasons I watch Springwatch etc is because they concentrate on the UK.

Iím confused as well as I got the impression it was for the whole series. If itís just 1 episode and not the usual 4 days, it will be a major disappointment.

New England fall colours, maybe some bird migration (Yank warblers even in fall....); Black Bears finishing their fattening up. I and others have been saying for some time that Seasonwatch should go international and this sounds great.

During the item when they were looking at the chart with the young eagle's movements shown in red, it was good to hear Chris' comments that he would hold his breath when it was flying in the east of the area shown as that's where eagles disappear frequently.

It's in the US. Will be interesting to see what they find.

"New England In The Fall" can only be a good thing as far less chance of an over-focus on birds as is my take on Springwatch 2018 content.
