    Hi chris
    Every summer I get a mixture of finches, sparrows, thrush , and some small birds with colouring of
    grey with black stripefrom his head , has I have a couple of bushes ranging from bamboo, forsythia and a big Eucalyptus,and I so enjoy watching them feed from the fatball hanger. The funny thing I watch is the pigeons picking up the crumbs

    adding to alice`s comments about the pholcus phalangeoides spiders. They are all over my house, though have thinned out a bit now. These feed on other spiders, including tegenaria house spiders. I have to go round my house catching and putting out the house spiders not just because they scare the wife, but to save them from a sticky end at the hands of these skinny assassins.

    Early last week I noticed a large flock of long tailed tits near where I live then watched a large flock of pink footed geese flying overhead from the east coast and today watched a flock of swans flying over the north sea towards the broads in Norfolk. I love it hear in Norfolk, plenty of birds flying in. Pam.

    I am really enjoying the coverage. I love the new red button coverage. I also really liked the relaxed chat with Nick.. Unsprung was fine Nick it is great to see both sides of the coverage the very professional technically perfect and the warm full of personality more relaxed info Keep going.

    When we visit our holiday home in Brittany we often hear a distinctive bird call in nearby small woods, surrounded by open farmlands.- So far have been unable to locate the bird. Its call is three notes "chuff chuff chuff", repeated one or two times.
    Any ideas of which bird makes this call?

    Do you know that the red button system hasn't been working all evening and part of the day. Message on screen is 'the service you are trying to watch is temporarily unavailable. 'Can't watch Unsprung or any of the live Leighton Moss footage. As I live locally to Leighton Moss this is really frustrating.
