BBC Springwatch ADMIN October 10, 2016
Welcome to the Watches! This group now covers the whole year, including Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch (and everything in between!)

After speaking to our group members and taking into account their feedback, we have opened this group up for the year, rather than having separate seasonal ones. Please only post photographs of British wildlife, taken in the UK.

Group Description

Welcome to The Watches! This group covers the whole year, including Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch (and of course everything in between!)


Please see our Bird and Bug ID threads to get help identifying the animals in your photos.

Group Rules

(i)Submission guidelines:

•This is a group for all seasons, open to content of British wildlife taken only in the British Isles. It connects with Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch.

•No people - this is just for nature, wildlife, animals, plants and landscapes.

•No farm or domesticated animals.

•If you’ve taken multiple photos of a similar subject matter, please submit your best, not all of your photos. You are welcome to post up to three photos per day.

•You understand and agree that your photos and videos may appear in Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch output and other BBC programmes and services across all media, together with third party digital platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
