    I would like to see your night film people film where our many garden birds sleep. I have never been able to discover where.

    When red stags regrow their antlers, do they grow the same shape as the old ones, or do they get bigger every time? Thank you.

    What type of equipment would you recommend for filming birds in flight (e.g. buzzards) the latest camcorders seem to have difficulty maintaining focus and have no optical viewfinders

    This is for Nick Baker (& team),

    My name is Keith Ringland and I took you up to see Wildcats about ten years ago, unfortunately unsuccessfully. I have some trail camera footage of a wildcat kitten (about two thirds grown) taking a pheasant bait in the snow. It was filmed in the same location I took you to, about two years ago and only 20 minutes drive from the Mar lodge. If this footage may be of interest for the Winterwatch series, then let me know and I can send it by FTP transfer (its about 50MB). Just come back to me if its of interest.

    A few years ago there was talk of badgers being reintroduced into Scotland. You've not mentioned theatre. Any news please.

    Do you have any advice for an a-level student who wants to start out filming wildlife and can't afford to buy expensive equipment etc.? Thanks! :)
