Mike Dilger and Miranda Krestovnikoff are back in Bristol for part three of Garden Watch.

Mike dons his wetsuit and goes for a snorkel in a pond. He encounters the fabulous pond skater and also what's often called the 'Lion of the pond' the dragonfly nymph.

Miranda revisits Mr and Mrs Green. Their birdfeeder is being pilfered by the local squirrels. They ask, 'How do squirrels find the nuts that they hide?' So Miranda sets up a test to find out.

As night falls Mike sets a light trap to see what moths he can find in the garden. Find out tomorrow how well it works!

    Wouldn't the squirrel test have been more valid if you had only used white cups, rather than introducing the vaiable of red?
    Red may have been his favourite colour ;-)

    Adrian the bird you referred to as a Falcon in todays show was infact a Female Sparrowhawk, therefore an accipiter HAWK not a member of the falco family. Easy mistake to make, just blame the autocue ;-)
