Chris Packham's Tweet of the Day Springwatch

It is Springwatch week, and host Chris Packham selects his favourite episodes from Tweet of the Day, species that should be calling or singing while Springwatch is on air.

It is the final week of the BBC's wildlife series Springwatch; what better time then than for it's host Chris Packham, a long time presenter and supporter of Tweet of the Day, to select five of his personal favourites from the Radio 4 series.

In this episode Chris recalls the delight on seeing a sparrowhawk in the garden before introducing the five species he has chosen from his own time presenting on the series, which you can hear Monday to Friday at 05.58 this week.
