Join in the Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend

Since the snow, I've become obsessed with feeding the birds in the back yard. And with the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch coming up this weekend, I've even started buying food specially for them - nuts, seeds, dried fruit - to complement their regular diet of old brown bread and tired cheese ends and I'm putting out water so they can have a drink or a bath while it's frozen…

Who is Derek of Palmers Green?

I couldn't sleep last night so was wandering around my flat when at 2:00 a.m. I heard the birds begin to sing. I made a little film of it  which only gets a short blast of their cheery song!   My batteries ran out.  And as sod's law would have it they went full throttle after that - until about 4:00.  I thought they were supposed to be asleep at that hour of the night - but it was nice to have company! …
