Bill Bailey plays host to two teams of well-known personalities – made
up of a keen famous ‘twitcher' and another who's really not that
interested in ornithology – as they compete against one other in testing
twitching tasks. Each episode, the beloved British comedian sets the
famous faces six ornithological obstacles, including four distinct
birding challenges, and two bonus campsite ones. These range from
straight bird races (spotting as many different species in a set time)
to drawing, photography and counting contests. Whoever wins the most
rounds will be named top twitchers. The series takes Bill and the
competing couples to some of Britain's most beautiful and best
birdwatching locations, from the tranquillity of Rutland Water to the
sheer spectacle of thousands of migrating geese in the Solway Firth to
the rugged beauty of the Isle of Mull.
