    Great to see it back - adored it last year when they went after the Scottish wildcat and I thought the new team did really well last night , inpressed by the guy who has come out from behind the camera thought he was good value.

    As a reult of this programme I buy my own weight in birdseed each month :lol:

    Anyone else watching?

    It was reported that Bill was suffering from depression and decided not to take part in Spring watch this year.

    Difficult as 1 the longer exposures do blurr a lot as we wouldn't be able to use a flash and 2 shooting through double glazing is not good - but I will have a go
