The Casual Birder Podcast

A podcast about wild birds and bird watching.

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.

Even casual birding can turn up surprises. Suzy spends some time looking at the birds in a small London square. And is delighted when a Chiffchaff appears in her garden one day, along with a mixed flock of small birds.
