The Great British Birding Show

Join Chris Morgan as he travels the English countryside with Twitcher Lee Evans.

Kick back for a spot of British birdwatching as I head into the English countryside with twitcher Lee Evans. Evans is an extreme birder. He’s become well-known as the man who’ll go to any lengths to fulfill his bird obsession.

Lee has driven 2.2 million miles around the United Kingdom and Ireland looking for birds. So far, he’s seen 594 different species, but not without some mishaps.

I join him for a day in the field to hear more, and to tap into the mind of a really fascinating and knowledgeable man. Enjoy!
