Enjoyed that! Cheered me up a bit after a stressful day Smile

I do believe their nest box cameras have improved. And they where already very good.

I enjoyed it too Bill was on his best behaviour. There were some lovely nestbox pics, although it's a shame the crested tits didn't take up residence in one of their boxes. Brightened up a grey and rainy day!

The Producer must of told him not behave I was watching Points Of View and people were moaning about him being silly. I don't mind Bill being funny as I'm a fan he probably does it incase some young kids watch it with their parents. Though that footage of him banging his head on the hide was quite funny

Much improved series this year Thumbs up Applause . Bill is significantly more deferencial to Kate, although still patronising on occasions. The setup in Norfolk is excellent...although obviously some things are not going as planned. Well done BBC Very Happy , but it isn't helping me to get the DIY done Sad !!!

Near the beginning of the show, when they were showing the Scottish wild cat did anyone else notice the sound of a cuckoo?? I've never seen or heard a real cuckoo (as opposed to the 'clock' type Laughing ) But I'm sure I could hear one on this footage. Couldn't hear it near the end when they showed the wild cat again!

I think it is very irresponsible of Bill to talk about holding an egg to his ear (sometimes doing it on air), and listening to the noise of the chick inside - he has done this in a previous series when an owl's egg was taken out of a nest.

He really shouldn't show this at all - but if he must, he surely should say that this may only be done very carefully by a trained person, who is licensed to do this sort of thing?

another thing is about that feed with Gordon and those 2 boys the other night they wore walking under that ban owl box an they should not have got that close under the schedule 1 license.
It would be nice to show a little more caution!

on the up series best series so far and good job simon with the osprey in slow motion.
Very Happy
