Between them Radio 4 presenter Brett Westwood and Springwatch producer and President of Somerset Wildlife Trust Stephen Moss have spent over a century watching and listening to birds.

In an aural extravaganza the duo provide a crash course in birdsong – complete with bizarre sounds, curious anecdotes and fascinating facts suitable for both novices and avid birders of all ages.

It is based on the highly successful Radio 4 series Tweet of the Day made in Bristol, which has entertained and informed legions of listeners since it first began broadcasting in May 2013.

The event as well as celebrating one of the great wonders of nature: the variety and beauty of British birds and the sounds they make; will raise vital funds for Somerset Wildlife Trust and their work of safeguarding the county’s wildlife and wild places, and encouraging everyone to enjoy and appreciate the natural world around them.
