    Hugh's Wild West

    Hugh,s wild West yesterday was the first episode I had seen.Forest of Dean was superb.Will now have to see all old episodes. Great mix of enthusiasm, respect and errors..Hugh,s voice was not a whisper as he and Robin visited boar family. Not quite as jolly hockey sticks as Winterwatch and I...

    Big Cat Britain - Here we go again!

    My sister had a wild cat in her Surrey garden over 20 years' ago. She later identified it as a puma (mountain lion). it chased her cat up a tall tree but was forced down when she threw bricks at it. It then disappeared over the 6ft hedge. It was snowing at the time so the prints were left behind...

    Autumn Watch 2010

    Re the appearance of those beautiful owls on Unsprung this week, I recently attended a talk about a swan and hedgehog rescue centre by Wilts Wildlife Trust . The giver of the talk, Sue Hulbert, brought along photos of rescues, and 2 wild animals recently rescued. One was a hedgehog, injured on...

    Lee Evans interviewed by David Lindo

    I found this very interesting and felt Lee came across well. He was soberly dressed in shirt and tie so gave the appearance of taking this chance to speak seriously. I can imagine that criticism does hurt him...he is human , after all, if a little intense and obsessive. But then again...

    Birds Britannia 3 Nov BBC4 9pm

    Actually, tonight I take back what I've said earlier.... The programmes tonight were excellent and Ms Humble was very much easier to watch and listen to than previously when I had found her manner annoying. I thought she was "spot on "tonight....and helped make 2 very interesting programmes...

    Birds Britannia 3 Nov BBC4 9pm

    I Kate is a lovely looking woman (which you have to be to survive Jay Hunt, apparently) but the problem I have with her is that she is oh so boring and heavy. She can be rather too gushingly- serious or, on the other hand, overwhelmed with laughter, which the viewer fails to share. To me it...

    Thank you for that, Andrew. St Cuthbert and the eider ducks....very interesting. " Cuthbert was so great a speaker and had such a light in his angelic face. He also had such a love for proclaiming his good news that none hid their innermost secrets from him." The Venerable Bede...

    Birds Britannia 3 Nov BBC4 9pm

    However, I don't agree with the programme makers who assert that the reason we feed the birds in the garden is to have some control of them. I put out scraps at night for the fox and badger, whom I rarely see. Likewise, you put out bird food because the weather is cold and avian life gets...

    Birds Britannia 3 Nov BBC4 9pm

    Not as amusing as Twitchers programme (I have now watched it 4 times and enjoyed it every time!) but BB is very interesting factual programme, full of little titbits of knowledge.
