    So what's going on? Why has Autumnwatch gone west? Do they have too much money in their budget? Do I care about elks and bears ?

    Elks and Bears ?

    Has there been a jailbreak from the local Zoo Silks ?

    Didn't think Bears could afford to live in New England

    I once saw the results of a collision between an elk and a car in the Rockies in Canada.

    The elk was a bit shaken up but the car was a complete write-off.

    I've seen the result of a collision between a car and a moose too - the Moose won.

    I don’t think they will be filming that sort of thing @peakster

    ....and in this episode of fall watch ....if you are going to hit a moose with a 4 x 4 which one isn't going to look like a fridge afterwards.

    maybe not.....

    It must be filmed near some cliffs.

    Mooses don't like cliffs - they have no head for heights

    I saw their trailer, looked out the window and wondered why they felt the need to go all that way to see some beautiful leaves.

    Couldn't agree more. Leaves going golden, orange, red etc here.

    In British English, we have that evocative word "Autumnal".

    What is the US equivalent? Fallal??

    There's a bit of my drive to work that comes down a hill through woodland and every day right now the leaves are getting redder... quite beautiful.

    Fall is an old English term. We stopped using it. The Americans carried on. We switched to an Etruscan term during the fad for all things neo-Classical.

    I always thought Autumnal was an American expression.

    Originally the Etrustcan ''Autu'' which became the Roman "Autumnus"... 3000 year old Cultural Appropriation...

    The long dead Etruscans want their word back!

    I only say that because I lived in North America for a few years and you would hear that word all the time in Autumn
