The first bird you see in this video is a sparrow! The Great tits are so hard to video. They skim in and out of the peanut feeder – it is about half way through this short video before you see a good picture of a Great Tit. You have to search for them in among the leaves and the feeder!
I’ve managed to upload this clip to the BBC Programme SpringWatch!! It’s brilliant being able to join in with Spring Watch.
I know this short video of mine will be one of millions that SpringWatch receive and I know it is not the best by a long, long way, but it’s my video and as I said, it’s brilliant to be a tiny part of Springwatch.
I’ve seen a rook eating a blackbird so no wonder this blackbird seems a little wary. I love the close up (near the end of this video )of the blackbird’s face showing its yellow eye ring and beak. I’m sure it looks a bit nervous.
Here’s a short video of a garden bird managing to eat some bird food before the rooks come back. I left the video running for twenty minutes and for 18 of those minutes rooks were getting the bird food!
I should know what bird it is, but not sure. Can you help?
