You want your wildlife? We got your wildlife. With spring in the air we talk incoming March migrants and emerging butterflies and go hiking on the South Downs in search of long-eared owls with guests Penny & Dave Green. Graeme brings his new friend to the podcast, Mat finds his own red kite, Michael rants about twitchers and we do our first (and last) film review.
