Description Things just aren't the same in the office with Tariq not around. I'm really starting to miss his bald head and he's only been away a day. Come back mate. All is forgiven. I still love you.

Birdwatching is the twenty-fifth webisode in the KateModern video series.


(Various shots of women walking along Brushfield Street, London.)

Gavin: Ah yeah, all shapes, all sizes. (Cut to shot of Gavin talking to camera.) Well, I never thought I'd get bored of this. My heart's just-it's not in it today. Oop, hold on. (Turns the camera towards two women walking by.) Wow. (Back to Gavin.) I thought I'd come out for a spot of lunch. Just didn-didn't really feel like going back. I don't like being the office on my own. I wish Tariq was here. I didn't like seeing that video of him at Upton Park, I just, I-I thought he was being a bit hard on himself for something that probably wasn't even his fault anyway. And as for that Steve bloke (shakes his head and sighs). We haven't got time for any more of Kate and her 'modern madness' (Video turns black and white and Gavin puts on a faux-posh voice.) Look at my art videos, pigeons aren't they great! (shot of a pigeon) Ooh, he's done a little poo! (Colour returns and Gavin uses his normal voice.) I need Tariq here now. The people I ended up borrowing our start up capital from, well they're not exactly Barclays and they're definitely not gonna take too kindly to the repayment setbacks. Oi oi.

(Turns camera toward Charlie.).

Charlie: Are you stalking me??

Gavin: I didn't know you worked round here. What's the matter?

Charlie: It's Kate.

Gavin: (disdainful noise) You as well, eh?

Charlie: Well I'm-I'm worried about her.

Gavin: Why, what's she done now?

Charlie: Well, it's Steve.

Gavin: Ugh. (Pans the camera down to Charlie's legs.)

Charlie: I mean, apparently he's found out that she was down in the Carnaby Street area when she went missing and now he wants to take her back down there.

Gavin: Sounds like bollocks to me.

Charlie: I mean-I just, I'm worried about her, I don't want her to go! (Camera pans down again.)

Gavin: If you want, I can look into it for ya.

Charlie: You can?

Gavin: Yeah, I'm a-I'm a bit handy with the old internet and stuff. No promises but I'll see what I can find.

Charlie: That could be really cool. You're the best. (Gavin laughs modestly then kisses Charlie on the cheek.) What are you doing here anyway?

Gavin: Ah well, I'm just brushing up on my ornithology.

Charlie: Ornithology?

Gavin: Yep. Yeah, it's er, it's my - it's my favourite hobby. You'll love it. Just-you just walk that way, I'll, ah, get a bit of practice. (Zooms in on Charlie's behind.) Pow!


  • Gavin is sitting under the Bishops Square Canopy (off Brushfield Street), Spitalfields, E1 [1]
  • Ornithology by definition is "the study of birds." In Britain, however, the term "bird" also refers to women. So the title of the video is probably a pun, since Gavin spends a good half of the video watching women pass by.
  • The video advances the sexual tension in Gavin and Charlie's relationship.
  • The red streaks in Charlie's hair seem to be missing.
