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 episode as I:

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

This week my guest is Paul Cheall, host of Fighting Through podcast. He tells us about the birds he sees in his Norfolk garden and, following on from my last episode, there’s some further tips about feeding garden birds.
