    I haven't watched CF for months, but the info was there were wild geese to be seen so I bit on a bit of leather and chanced a look. I didn't see the first half so my comments can only refer to the 2nd half.
    Nothing beats the haunting sound of wild geese does it, stirred the blood for generations.
    But of course, this is countryfile, produced and fronted by plastic yuppies who thought it a topping wheeze to play music right over the pinkfooted geese' soundtrack.
    I knew it was a mistake to relent and switch this on.
    Bye

    This does not surprise me, imagine if some bright spark decided to play a soundtrack of wild geese hooting over a band performing on stage. You could consider a complaint to the programme.

    couldn't agree more with your comments on the music! Cameraman stands there saying what a wonderful sound the geese were making ( which they do) all we got was musak played loudly to prevent us hearing the very sound they were eulogising!! How stupid is that?

    I love seeing a cameraman filming a cameraman filming birds , great job creation by the BBC . I expect the first cameraman could do just a good a job filming the birds and then he could talk into his own camera , unions would no doubt have something to say about that .
