Countryfile “Autumn Spectacle” 15 October 2023 on BBC One
Tonight (Sunday 15 October 2023), BBC One broadcasts an episode of the series Countryfile!
Hosts Joe Crowley and Charlotte Smith take viewers on a captivating journey to the Wash in Norfolk, where one of the UK’s most spectacular wildlife events unfolds—the Snettisham Spectacular.
During the highest high tides of autumn, thousands of wading birds gather on the mudflats of the Wash. As the incoming tide approaches, these birds take to the air in breathtaking unison, creating a mesmerizing display of nature’s grandeur. Joe and Charlotte provide an immersive experience as they build up to this awe-inspiring spectacle and explore what the onset of autumn means for both the people and wildlife of this unique coastal landscape.
Joe Crowley isn’t afraid to get his hands (and boots) dirty as he ventures into the mud to understand why this area is such a magnet for migratory birds. Along the way, he also encounters another winged creature—bats in the belfry of a nearby church, presenting a unique conservation challenge.
Charlotte Smith joins forces with the RSPB, armed with her binoculars, to embark on a birdwatching adventure. She discovers the rich diversity of species that flock to this remarkable stretch of coast, including the remarkable knot.
In a different segment, Tom investigates a pressing issue in the world of jump racing—the safety of horses. He delves into why over a hundred horses lost their lives last year and explores the sport’s plans for a comprehensive safety overhaul.
Adam’s journey takes him to a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the iconic Jurassic coastline. He gets behind the wheel to drive a herd of cattle along the beaches, showcasing the unique connection between agriculture and the breathtaking natural beauty of the British coastline.
