Willow Warblers........ and a new bird on my patch

I had a lovely walk around Neumanns Flash on Sunday. 
I had my video camera and lightweight tripod with me and recently this has become my default walking combo.


I saw a Willow Warbler feeding it's noisy youngsters and manged to capture a couple of clips.
 (apologies for the poo shot but it made me laugh)
The highlight of the walk though was while returning to the car I spotted my first Redstarts on my patch.... priceless!

I recommend a view of my last two posts if you havn't seen them.
The badgers were wonderful to see.

video is something I have started to think about. Maybe next year. I have it on onw of may canons, but it is too hard to handle. But seeing your film is great. :)

Hi there - I always like getting a new bird on my "home patch" - so much more interesting than a new bird elsewhere that is pretty much a sure thing.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

I really enjoyed the video...made me smile.:-D) It is always exciting to have a new species show up. Congrats!

Another wonderful clip, Andrew! And of course, it reminded me of the baby gulls we saw. I've never owned a video camera, but must admit it would have been lovely to capture my little guys on videotape...

Great video. That parent bird certainly had to work hard to keep the young ones fed - they are so persistent!

Great video of the Willow warblers Andrew and congrats on the Redstart! What kind of camcorder are you using?

Andrew said...

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments...

Larry the camcorder is a little Canon Legria FS200 and is so portable and has an amazing 41x zoom. I always try to use a tripod though.

Springman said...

Brilliant film there Andrew the quality of the presentation is spellbinding. Must be a lot of work! I think the tripod is the thing no bouncing around like on my videos!

Kathiesbirds said...

Well, you hit the jackpot, didn't you! Great birds to see!

Hilke Breder said...

Enjoyed your videos, Andrew. Love the one with the badger! I know that animal only from "Wind in the Willows", nice to see it in real life. Beautiful photo of the boats at low tide in your most recent post.

NicoleB said...

I love all the new folks you see there!
It's always exciting to find a new one, no :D

I enjoyed this video a lot! Maybe I will have to try some videos myself one of these days... if I ever get caught up on dealing with all the images I have to edit first! HA! I'll be back again for another visit for sure. :-)
