Robins front door............................................................................. the Movie

I decided to wrap up warm and just sit with my camcorder with the patio doors wide open.
Within half an hour I had enough clips to make this little film of my garden birds using the hole in my fence to come and go from my garden.
Robin needs no introduction ...the little brown bird is a Dunnock.


One little chap couldn't wait to get in on the act so I gave him a small role...
...he's playing the part of a Grey Squirrel (over acting in my opinion).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I was locking up last night I spotted a Blue Tit land in the hole.
The patio doors were closed and if I had tried to open them he would have flown... so this clip was shot through the glass.
The clip has had a bit of help from Youtube to lighten it as it was getting quite dark.



Many thanks for watching.

If you ever sell the house Andrew you'll have to declare that hole as a public right of way!!

I've noticed that Squirrels always try to build up their part...lol...[;o)

I bet it would attract more birds going in and out if you placed a feeder close to the hole in the fence. Very cute.

Nice videos, Andrew! You definitely should leave the hole in the fence!

Great footage those squirrels make me laugh they remind me of the movie lampoons christmas vacation with Chevvy Chase... Have you seen it when they bring a christmas tree into the the house along with a squirrel critter which wreaks havoc in the house, so funny. If you haven't seen it watch it this crimbo;-)

What a treat for me to get to see your videos. I loved watching our feathered friends go in and out and eat. You did a wonderful job with them. Thanks so much for sharing. genie

Hi Drew...I'm late, I know...Love those videos...and PLEASE...DO NOT FIX THAT HOLE! Rain was no problem...it was great to see the bird and the squirrel. I could not say it was shot through the window glass...If you say so...
Brilliant My friend!

Oh...My mother is 80 and she drives too...sometimes too fast!!!
She is better now but she's having insulin, of course!

Hug you
