When is Autumnwatch on TV?
Autumnwatch returns to our screens for four days from Tuesday 26 October at 8pm on BBC Two.
Who is presenting Autumnwatch?
Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan will be presenting from Wild Ken Hill in Norfolk again, Gillian Burke will be at Castle Espie in Northern Ireland, and Megan McCubbin will be on the Isle of Mull in Scotland.
Regular presenter Iolo Williams won’t joining Autumnwatch this year, due to the dates changing and a clash with guiding work. However, he will be sharing his passion for the Isle of Mull in a pre-recorded film.
Unfortunately, I won’t be live on Autumnwatch this year. The dates had to be changed to accommodate live coverage of the FA Cup and the new dates clashed with a week’s guiding on Mull. I’ll miss the team but I’ll be back for Winterwatch. Good luck team!@BBCSpringwatch

What is the Autumn Watchlist?
The Autumn Watchlist is a list of signs of autumn for Autumnwatch viewers to look out and share on social media (using the hashtag #AutumnWatchlist).
They are split into three categories – easy (such as migrating geese and ivy flowers), medium (such as redwings and caching squirrels), and hard (such as hedgehogs and pintails).
