Richard Daniel and the team are out and about for the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland Water. Unsurprisingly many of the questions are bird related: do seagulls eat insects on the wing, are jays on the increase and do kestrels eat birds as large as wood pigeons?

We also take a broader view of the universe, in fact the broadest possible, as one listener challenges our resident astronomer to provide an answer posed by her children: 'What is there beyond the stars?'

On the panel are astronomer Carolin Crawford, conservationist and ornithologist Derek Moore and Professor Philip Stott.
