Broadcast on BBC 4 last Friday but available via I-player until end of this week, I think.

Not seen it, but it may entertain you for an hour

Yes I'm sure it's been on TV before on BBC1, maybe a couple of years ago.

Here's a list of birdwatching obsessions. You may be able to add others. You can categorise them in various ways e.g. scientific/non-scientific, cheap/expensive, beginners/experts, spring/summer/autumn/winter activity etc etc .
Do you think there is a sequence to them?
Are they all of equal worth? or can you line them up as per the John Cleese, Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett social classes sketch?
Which one describes you best? Is it the same every year?

Hide hugging
Listing and yearlisting
Twitching
Foreign tripping
Digiscoping/photographing
Patch working
Surveying
Vismigging
Ringing
Nest recording.

I do ALL of them - so does that make me a mega-obsessive?

Have you given up Seawatching Jean?

Oh yes, how could I forget that one? Also I've ditched the digiphotography for the time being as I found I couldn't do that and birdwatching at the same time.
