I have to say I think Lolo Williams is brilliant and so knowledgeable, that area the Mid Wales Marches looks stunning and worth a visit, it looks a lot less spoilt than parts of north and south Wales, but lets face it they all live in or near stunning scenery. I agree about it appearing to be more relaxed and the part about the Knepps Estate in Sussex was amazing, i'd never even heard of the place, lets hope it doesn't get over run but I think you have to book any visits, its certainly tucked away

24 hours of quiet bliss - surprised it's not more popular to be honest

Missed it last night, bugger

Whatís the live version Keebs, did you go fishing?

I went last night, got to the lake, packed out, had a walk round, came home, far too busy for my liking

I know Packham is like marmite, I can tolerate him. I like the other presenters though

The quality of filming and photography is immense these days in HD. Brings nature right into my living room. Love it.

Live version yesterday
Brolly absolutely covered in damsels and sedges, even had a dragonfly emerge on there!
Knew I should have taken the macro camera
Loads of House Martins and Swifts, but no Swallows.
Sparrowhawk, Egyptian Goslings, Jays, Buzzards, Willow Warbler right next to me all day. Loads of good stuff.


I think I prefer the new slower pace of this Springwatch to be honest, feels like there's less pieces but they're longer.
Not hopping all over the place trying to cram loads in.
Packham seems more relaxed with less people around him as well.

Yes Iím back, never been away but a bit lost without the footy.

Regarding the red kites, they were reintroduced a few years back around the A40 area and have really established themselves, fantastic to see some have managed to come further south, about 5 years ago I was working in a place called Princes Risborough and every day there would be a dozen or do gliding over our site, apparently the surrounding households use to feed them

Amazing birds red kites. Their wing span is so wide. When they fly over you low, quite impressive for me if Iím honest. Just think yourself lucky your not a rabbit, not a chance!

Once fishing and a bittern came from behind and flew about 5 meters above my brolly, absolutely **** myself, thought it was a Pterodactyl

I've only ever seen a few Kites when I dangled on a few waters on the Shrops/Welsh border. Great bird's to watch raptors. Did see a few mistle thrushes late April, can't recall seeing or hearing a song thrush

Down here in East Sussex, we are seeing Robins a lot more than usual, also sparrows seem to be doing better than previous years, and Buzzards are well established, magnificent birds, Iíve even seen red kites, good to see theyíve spread out down here from Oxford way. 👍....sadly I canít remember the last time I saw a thrush or heard a cuckoo
