    We are becoming avid followers of Winterwatch, and watch the programme regularly. It is quite a learning curve, but very enjoyable. Last night we though we heard one of the presenters say we could be alerted to the 'wild life' in our area by typing in our post code. The post code bit we think is right but cannot be certain. However the question is can we somehow know about the wild life in our area, through the winterwatch web site, or indeed any other? Answers would be very, very much appreciated.

    On another matter we regularly put out food for the birds in our garden with about 10 different feeding stations. Recently we bough a feeding station encased by a wire cage, just for the small birds who get bullied away by the others (in particular, pigeons). The openings to the cage allow just the small birds in. We have had this about two weeks during which time just one or two small ones have gone in. As this is a product on general sale, we assume it works, but so far not for us. Any advice about this, or on the issue of how we can have feeding stations for small birds, by keeping the bigger ones out.

    Ossiebarb ,I have seen a similiar"court of jackdaws" last summer.It seemed a pair were having a right old arguement in the huge sycamore opposite my garden.Within a few seconds about fifty others came zooming in from out of nowhere to land in the tree.As it was heavily in foilage it was tricky to see what was going on ,but I thought there would be even more noise when they landed .Instead it seemed they had come to observe or mediate and soon flew off again when the argument was settled.

    Really enjoying Winterwatch .The presenters are excellent and make it very informative and fun.I liked the feature on the robin.One comes to my garden at night as well as day.I put out bird food in the evening so its ready for them early morning before I am up.My bedroom backs onto my city garden and without fail robin starts cheerfully twittering away at 3.30am.outside my window.!I am a light sleeper and there is a street lamp shining on the garden so it maybe thinks its later than it is.A blackbird isnt far behind.Talk about the early bird.!..

    I have just seen 5 hares in the field in front of my house, near Binbrook in Lincolnshire. I wish I had a camera with a telephoto lens!

    In early January my family and I were watching a rather panicked frog hopping along our back garden. The reason for it's panic soon became clear when a weasel ran to it, bit down on it's neck and ran off with the poor frog in it's mouth. I really wish I had my camera handy, has anyone got tips for tempting it back, I may be lucky enough to film it on my camera trap.

    Have to say I think this is one of the best "Watch" series yet, my 7 year old son loves it too. But I agree with Superfiddler's comment, it is on too late, Jack has to watch it on Iplayer the next day. Please could it be on earlier next time ?

    @48. Heathen 10 : are you sure it wasn't a sparrowhawk? Hen Harriers prefer open country, eg moorland and they are much bigger.
