Not seen any dates or location this year. Does anyone have any information?

At the bottom of the page it says Springwatch returns next month. I didn't know that Martin was leaving.

on the subject, anyone know is it OK to feed fruit and grapes to Blackbirds?  we have one that is accustomed enough to come and ask for food so I sometimes give him a grape or piece of a pear (if I'm eating one at the time).  He then takes them to stick down the gob of his offspring often in plain sight.   I'd have thought they'd get plenty of variety at the moment with slugs and worms in good supply.

Will be interesting to see who replaces him, he brought a sense of fun to the show since Bill Oddie left.

On the subject of Springwatch presenters I do find myself zoning out when they do a section presented by Gillian Burke - def not a natural in front of a camera

Birds would have taken fruits from hedges or orchards so I would not be too worried.

blackbirds love grapes-saw one helping himself at a busy grocers once

they have again nested in the wysteria above my back door (as they do). last year the tiny chicks were fed cherries from the tree next door- they have quite a gape..

Interesting, I had heard that Cornish children were precocious feeders.

Well that’s one less hand talking, long haired, posh buffoon!

Bring back Bill and that posh tottie, bin Michaela and they might have a show;)

Yes. My Mrs reckons she should just do a ‘porn line’.
