This would have been a perfect 10 score from me except for one thing. It was all birds. I like birds. They are amazing creatures who have a really hard life if you look past the whole gift-of-flight thing. Yet they get on with things not worrying about all the tiny things that annoy us 'higher evolution' primates. But as good as birds are it would have been nice to have seen some more of the other wildlife that resides in this great country of ours. I was really impressed by the whole 'gannet' episode though because despite having heard the phrase all my life I had never really seen a gannet chowing down. I understand that phrase a LOT better now. A little overpriced for my budget but well worth watching and a really interesting way to pass a quiet day for people who enjoy learning about the planet we are slowly destroying.
