The Casual Birder Podcast

A podcast for people interested in wild birds.

Birding is a great pastime. It can be done with others or alone. You don't need expensive equipment, your eyes or ears are enough.

And best of all, it doesn't really need any great commitment. The Casual Birder does as much or as little birding as suits them. It's perfect for fitting into our busy schedules. 

 

Join me each week as I:

  • talk about the birds I have seen, 
  • interview others who enjoy wild birds, and 
  • share comments and questions from listeners.

This week, I met with Martin Austwick, host of the Song by Song Podcast, for a bird walk in London’s Regent’s Park.

Martin describes himself as a casual birder, and we had a lovely stroll around the park, just noticing the birds that were around.

Along the way I heard about some of the birds that Martin has seen on...

This week, I go birdwatching in Regent’s Park, there’s a trip report from the Isles of Scilly by my husband, John, and Friend of the Show, Alan, gives us an update on the Cardinal family in his garden in Savannah, Georgia.

Note - the bird walk in Regent's Park was recorded there and there will be background noise...

This week, I take a lunchtime bird walk and the featured birds are Wrens - the Eurasian Wren that is found all over Europe, and the House Wren and Bewick's Wren, that I saw in California.

A special mention is given to the Superb Fairy-Wren seen in Eastern Australia.

This week, comedian Glen Tickle is my guest.

Glen is also a casual birder and we had a great conversation that covers bird identification, the birds that Glen sees in his local area in New Jersey, and how he is encouraging a love of the natural world with his daughter, Amelia.
