My wife an occasional birdwatcher also enjoyed the new format and thought it was better than the "old normal". So far I tend to agree with her.
Chris Packham's step daughter was impressive - very assured, good luck to her.

With you on that!

Mind you, with all its faults (and among those I'm going to mention use of the meaningless word "mindfulness" to cover short films with no narration) it's still one of the best things on TV, though the bar is low these days. Springwatch on means Escape to the Country, EastEnders, anything with Stacy Dooley, any reality shows etc are NOT on. Which can only be a good thing.

Completely agree. It would have been well worth looking at the habitat effects of the free-living ones on the River Otter. Even better they could have highlighted the Scottish government's decision to allow landowners to slaughter the population in the Tay catchment (87 shot legally in 8 months).

Completely agree with this too. Same for 'background' music.

I thought she rather upstaged her step-father, although she was as bad as anyone when it came to talking all over the birdsong (especially the bit about song mimicry).
