BBC Autumnwatch inviting kids to send “on the hop” animal photos

CBBC Autumnwatch on the hop

BBC Autumnwatch producers are seeking “on the hop” photos of animals from CBBC viewers.

“Get outdoors, find a great autumn spot and ask someone to take a photo of you jumping in the air, or just enjoying the season.”

Special Autumnwatch galleries will be created on the CBBC website and the main Autumnwatch and Autumnwatch Live pages.

There may also be some familiar CBBC faces joining in the hoppy snapping.

Autumnwatch 2016 will run from Monday 24th October to Thursday 27th October – all at 8pm on BBC Two. Now in its 10th series, it will be presented from RSPB Arne in Dorset.

Many kids will be on half-term break during this week, so there’s plenty of time to get out into the autumnal countryside during the day, despite the darker mornings and evenings.
