Life in the nest photo Richard Taylor-Jones (from Springwatch)

A family of Parakeets nesting in the attic of a Ramsgate pub will feature on BBC Springwatch tonight (June 11) and tomorrow.

A special nest box camera, operated by Ramsgate nature expert Keith Ross, was used for a month of filming in the attic of the Chilton Tavern.

The two part film will follow the nesting birds rearing a pair of chicks from just a few days old through to the fledging of the last chick from the attic space.

You can catch the first episode on BBC2 at 8pm  both nights.
