Sorry peeps forgot to tell you all!

I cant be there to watch live and I cant video it as I cant get the ****** thing to record!
Wonder if it will be repeated somewhere like BBC4?

It was good except for some daft bearded bloke, who kept popping up and spoiling it.

Some very nice views of Knot bobbing their heads like a mexican wave!

You can probably watch it on BBCi via the website, Corinna. I didn't think it was great some amazing photography and sound captures, but Bloddie at his annoying worst. Still watchable, though.

It is highly unlikely that we shall be watching the next programme let alone the whole series.

We had hoped that when B.O. didn't have to compete wirh Kate Humble, there would be a good wildlife programme - so this was a great disappointment.

I'd love to see the birds at Snettisham at the right time http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/s/snettisham/index.asp and I shall be checking the tide tables before we plan a visit - if only I could have seen it on TV without someone who thinks he's still a Goodie.

Thanks Kit -
and Ambriel for the link.

Well the Snettisham birds were wonderful thanks to John Aitchison.

Quite agree Bill has got worse why oh why does he think he has to behave like this!

Best way to watch- just like I have as I was able to edit Bill out quite a lot!
What dreadful gnomes and things so many- not to my taste at all!


people have tasteful garden "furniture or pottery" - I dont have any but I might when I move out of London and get my wildlife garden together!

Don't think we will bother either, even the kids got fed-up with it half way through.

Seems we're all of the same opinion. Might record it so I can be selective and can whizz through the annoying bits! Laughing

Me too. Why did he have to turn it into the Bill Oddie Comedy half hour? I lost interest after 10 mins. Sad
