5th November. Bearded Tit

Back in the early eighties, when I first started birding, I used to look up to Odd Billie as the only proper celebrity bird watcher of the time. I read and read Little Black Bird Book until it literally fell to pieces never getting bored of it. Sadly now he's a annoying twat!!
Until last night I had managed to avoid Autumn Watch, but last night I stumbled across it quite by accident. The fat pompous turd started going on about the recent birding highlights of the autumn starting with an 'amusing' story about how birdwatchers were watching a 'rare' American Nighthawk when suddenly, in front of their eyes, a car ran over it! Hilarious tabloid humour Bill, though totally untrue. The Nighthawk was picked up dead at the side of the road having probably been run over and in fact was never actually seen alive by any birders. The next story was about how 5000 'twitchers' had dashed to West Cornwall for the Alder Flycatcher - 5000 my arse!! Bill finished off by twitching a pile of plastic shit at Radipole after embarrassing a group of birders at Portland.
Bill. Do us all a favour and phone up some old Seventies sitcom star claiming to have shagged their granny or something and piss off from our screens all together.

The clip below proves what a nob he's turned in to. Kate must have had one hell of an overwhelming urge to push him in.

As Spring and Autumnwatch go out live, we can only hope that one of these days he does a Jonathan Ross and gets sacked. It's certainly high time he was pensioned off and they brought in someone who doesn't make all birders look like twats. But that could be difficult, as most birders (and all TV presenters) are twats!

he also referred to the Galway Little Blue Heron
as "the first record for Britain though technically it was in Ireland" - so technically it wasn't a first for britain at all!

I was tempted to email in and point out his schoolboy errors but thought that would just confirm what the fat twat thinks of other birders.

I wonder if his Eleanora's falcon was accepted? No of course it wasn't!

Thanks for that Mike. I had heard about that but had no idea how cringe worthy it was.
