Coming up on Winterwatch tonight and a quick feather quiz

Web Producer

Winterwatch is back on BB2 tonight at 8pm, and here's a quick quiz (which will also be on the show).

What bird is this feather from?

Winterwatch Extra - 9pm on the webcams
And don't forget to get your internet going at 9pm for Winterwatch Extra with Euan McIlwraith, who's joined tonight by Chris Packham, wildlife sound recording legend Gary Moore and wildlife expert Simon Foster from Scottish Natural Heritage.

Here's Euan, but what's landed on his shoulder during this interview..?


Feel free to drop in your questions for Chris and Gary and we'll do our best to respond to as many as possible.

UPDATE: Well done to everyone who got it right. Chris is holding a long-tailed duck feather and on Euan's shoulder is a wood wasp

    Chris Packham said that pine martens would not eat small mammals in trees.

    Maybe not in winter, but there is a small mammal that spends most of its time in trees in summer.

    So do pine martens eat hazel dormice?

    Mike.

    Recently we witnessed a Red Squirrel acting unusually in the Highland village Boat of Garten, near Aviemore
    Firstly we observed the beautiful little creature crossing the village road in front of us; it then hopped onto the church wall and scurried along before dismounting in front of the church, then it made its way across to the church stopping in front of the external sandstone wall, at a place located adjacent to the church door, then it started licking the wall.
    My guess is that it was getting salts from the stone wall, could this be the case ?

    Great show thanks ...... Alistair

    a bird that lays small blue eggs and nested in the hedgerow was known to us when we were young as a molly hedge sparrow, do they still exist?

    Could you please advise where the footage of the Longtailed Duck footage was taken? We think it was Burghead Harbour near Elgin in Scotland?
