Since Simon has been so good as to e-mail me the dates of Springwatch I thought you would like to share in this news.

Monday to Thursday - 25th May to 11th June.

Simon will be in North Wales.

Thanks. Very Happy

I still don't get how they can call it Springwatch though. June is summer! Oh well. Cool

Yeah, right, so how do they work this one out then - "Midsummers Day, the middle of summer, falls on on 24 June" Question

I always thought we had four seasons in the uk, each containing three months. So Spring, in my book, is March, April, May. Summer June July August, etc. So are they now saying each month is split up for the seaons? I know I am being pedantic lol, but it does wind me up somewhat Laughing
