Does anybody watch Springwatch?! I am a huge wildlife fan and I do enjoy the live cams everywhere. All we have got on ants so far is about their relationship with aphids. They are saying the aphids are the ants slaves?!! Hmmm!
Anyway, my gripe is why do they not have a live cam on a wild nest or indeed an artificial set-up like they did last year with the Bumblebee nests, which were fascinating viewing. Why not?!
PS- I also always wanted a Magpies nest or even a Crows nest cam to show the life's of these birds and change people's views of them, like the ant cams would. I have requested, but it falls on deaf ears!
I'm a big fan of Springwatch, although I haven't watched it for a couple of years. Missed it this year as well, but I'm watching through the episodes on iPlayer. Anyway, I agree it would be great if they had a camera on an ants nest. Maybe we could request it for next year, you never know they might think its a good idea.
