Today's filming went very well. I started the day by meeting the main guy involved in the Red Kite re-introduction in Gateshead. We also visited the Metro shopping centre, hopped on the 'Kite' bus and chatted with a bunch of school kids. It was a great day with some more to come tomorrow.
It was officially announced today that Chris Packham has taken over the hot seat vacated by Bill Oddie. I congratulate Chris. Kate and the team remain though there is talk that there will be other presenters involved.
I hope that I will be in that number.
