You may remember my experiment way back in 2013 when I kept a list of all the birds I spotted while watching TV – here is the original article if you want to read it:
Well, in these difficult times I thought it would be a good time to suggest it as another way of keeping your brain active, even when sat in front of the “box” in the evenings.
When I did this in 2013 I included all the wildlife programmes like Springwatch – which is why my list was over 150, and why I got such a ribbing from everyone for allegedly “cheating”!
I leave it to you to decide whether or not to include those programmes – my list would have been severely curtailed if I’d excluded Spring/Winterwatch.
Should you count bird sounds or not? – again, you’re choice. I recommend Midsomer Murders or Vera for a few owl or buzzard calls added to night/outdoor scenes to add to the atmosphere!
This is just a bit of fun so no prizes, and participation is definitely not mandatory. 😉
