I was amazed at just how many Blackbirds could be visiting the garden.

Just been on the radio bad weather (gales and heavy rain) is on the way for the South West and South Wales for the next few days spreading to the rest of us..i suppose more young will be lost.
Having just returned from that part of the world I can say with conviction that the weather has been hideous and further rain and cold temp's are not going to be helping things. On the bright side, Monday was lush though so hopefully that gave plenty of opportunity to feed up.
I can confirm that the midges are as awful as they look on the show!

How about those young Treecreepers
Brilliant so far...mink, what have they been up to?
Great to see the blue tits fledging and the goldcrest footage was insightful. Peregrines to come, can't wait.
Treecreepers going down trees...not that I know of, thats something only nuthatches do, treecreepers usually fly to the base and work their way up!
Alan, great footage of a seldom seen behaviour with the treecreepers, never seen that before.
Really interesting to see the peregrine ringing, great chance for the residents of Bath to learn about these awesome raptors...amazing that those bundles of white fuzz turn into the worlds fastest predator!
Incest in the nest, let's hope this doesn't have a down side...more tune dropping from CP there!
Great show again, good mix of species, behaviours and features, really liking the teams presenting style this year, what were your highlights this evening?
Yep i'm enjoying it more this series now they have calmed down.
My favourite was the ladies garden with all the cameras, and of course the Treecreepers.
Those treecreeper fledglings were amazing, but I'm sure it's been shown on SW before!
Do love that mammal stump! So funny seeing the interaction between species!
Was great to see some info on the rabbits too! Never knew the males squirted the females with their urine! Lovely! Lol! Found the footage with subordinate female and kits incredible too!

Excellent! sedge warbler nest to add to the list of favourites!
Great new nest Tom! Imagine finding a baby Peregrine on a cricket pitch!
