As Autumnwatch returns to our screens could you explore the countryside?

A fantastic story from one of our Partners, The Electric Bike Network. We could all use our electric bikes to explore some areas of extreme beauty. 

Autumnwatch returned to BBC Two at the end of October. Across four days, Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes-Games  broadcasted live from RSPB Leighton Moss, in the heart of the AONB, with the very best of the season’s wild action.

Autumn is a time of change, and the series explored nature’s key events and wild spectacles as well as explaining why this season is such a critical time for all of the UK’s wildlife.

Arnside & Silverdale AONB is home to some amazing wildlife and at this time of year we see spectacular autumn colours as the trees get ready for winter; tens of thousands of migrant birds arriving from northern Europe; starlings gathering in huge numbers and making incredible patterns and shapes in their magical murmurations before they settle for the night; and red deer rutting by the reedbeds. It certainly is a great time to visit and explore by bicycle.
