The Great British Year-Must watch TV Programme
Make sure you tune into this BBC one Programme being broadcast on Wednesday 23rd October at 9pm. There is some wonderful footage of salmon spawning last autumn in the middle Dee.
Episode 4 of 4
Duration: 1 hour
The fading sun brings an energy change to Britain: a time of storms and unpredictable weather. The trees go dormant, but not before a final fling of colour. For animals, the shortening days are a cue to prepare, hibernating and hoarding for the dark times ahead. For some, its still a time to breed; deer rut, seals give birth and the Atlantic salmon leaps waterfalls in order to lay its eggs in the River Dee. Beneath the fallen leaves, slime moulds, earthworms and fungi take advantage of autumn’s spoils.
