AUTUMNWATCH NEW ENGLAND
Part 2 of 3

 

Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan are live once more from the beautiful Squam Lake in New Hampshire, where overnight events have already thrown up plenty of surprises on the live cameras, including an update on the flying squirrels and new visitors to the carcass camera.

 

Gillian Burke is looking into the bird life of the region, from barred owls to pileated woodpeckers, before getting up close with one of New England’s smallest owls, the saw-whet.

 

Chris reports back on a dawn trip he took to one of the region’s migration hotspots, Michaela comes face to face with an elusive bobcat, and we meet the man who is studying the huge numbers of great white sharks that come to New England’s coastline at this time of year.
