I watched most of this last night (episode 3).

Some of it was quite interesting, like finding south from a tree stump. Apparently the centre core of the tree will move nearer to the sun (south) and when you look at the stump you should be able to see this by looking at the rings. They did add the cavet, that this wouldn't work in woodland as all the trees are competing for the light.

Another one was, spiders webs tend to be on the NE side of hedges/buildings as it is more sheltered.
