Forum Patron Chris Baines' Radio 4 Tweets for the week.

12th March 2018
Early-rising bird lovers can get very addicted to Tweet of the Day, aired on Radio 4 at 5.58 each weekday morning, with one selected 'Tweet of the week' episode repeated on Sundays at the less worthy hour of 8.58am.
Last week's Tweets were selected and beautifully introduced by our Patron, Professor Chris Baines.  He chose five garden bird species he enjoys watching and hearing in his own urban Wolverhampton garden. 

His selected species were:
  • Bullfinch (Tweet of the week)
  • Goldcrest
  • Song thrush
  • Great spotted woodpecker
  • Nuthatch

You can hear all five episodes on the BBC website at      

Chris is one of the keynote speakers at our forthcoming Wildllife Gardeners' Day meeting at the London Wetland Centre, speaking on a subject very close to his heart (and ours) "Growing the wildlife gardening revolution".
