The programme went through something of an identity crisis before coming to air. The programme was originally announced as Bill Bailey's Big Bird Watch, before passing through the more simplistic, Bill Bailey's Bird Watching, before seemingly settling on, Bill Bailey's Birdwatching Bonanza!, as shown in Sky's advance programme information. However that wasn't the end of it, as the programme went through one final, albeit slight name change, by dropping the exclamation mark, shortly before it aired.
