My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

Starting tomorrow - Monday 1 Dec

Tomorrow the BBC are transmitting the first of 10 half-hour programmes (screened every weekday for two weeks) on BBC2 - 2.30 p.m to 3.00 p.m. (most regions) - Nature's Top 40. This series is produced by the same production team that gives us Nature's Calendar and presenters include Chris Packham, Mike Dilger, Janet Sumner, Sanjida O'Connell.

Pity it's an afternoon screening and at the time it is! Even the school children won't be home in time to see it. Hope everyone sets up their respective recording devices!

I will be particularly interested in episode 5 which is being screened on Friday 5th December - why? Because a great deal of the "Ring-necked Parakeet" part of the programme was filmed in my garden. In fact it was Graham - the delightful wildlife cameraman - who spotted (what I'd begun to wonder about) the first of seven Bramblings that I had in January of this year!! And I can confirm that in January - the sun was shining!!

Hi Tricia, I didn't know you had been a "location" for this. Mind you it's not made by the NHU, so we'd not know necessarily. I'll have to watch if I can. You may like to know Mike is in the Gambia, due back any day, on a birding trip, lets hope he's back to watch his show too, and he owes me a pint :-)

How exciting to be filmed right in your garden! Do you get a mention? I wonder if any of the episodes are put up on their web site - have to go and see if I can find anything about it.

Tricia said...

BR - I'll email you re this in due course....

Tricia said...

Mick - yes I get a mention.... Let's just say one of the presenters (Sanjida O'connell)was one of team here in January!!

Nice - bbc wildlife cameraman in your garden! Im looking forward to this programme - I rather enjoyed natures calendar.

As for the weather mention in your previous post, it was so bad I put of my visit to Bushy Park for another weekend!

Tricia said...

Neil - sorry to hear to had to cancel your trip. Fingers crossed that the weather will be kinder very soon.

You never know, we might bump into each other !

Hi Tricia. I`ll make a note to watch that one.

Dean - I just hope the programme lives up to expectations!

I shall await your Friday post with interest (and a slight feeling of nervousness) LOL
