Am getting quite a few robins at my feeders at the moment. They certainly stand out with their red breasts.
It’s an old tatty bird table, but what a lot of birds got some benefit from it!
I don’t have this birdtable any more but it was a good birdtable as the tray was deep and so the bird food did not blow off. It also gave shelter to birds when they were feeding.
Excuse the background noise – I am not sure what it is.
How many different birds can you see. I saw 3, but if I watch it again I’m sure I’ll see more
Again I can’t see exactly when I recorded this video, but I’m enjoying myself going back over some of the videos I took. Three cheers for RIVA Encoder!
What will March 2010 be like?
I found this video clip stored on my computer and decided to put it on Bird Table News . Excuse my voice, but enjoy the birds singing.
The clip was taken one March – but which year!
Is there any way you can find out when a video was recorded
If you keep watching there is a close up of a rook in a nest.
I’m enjoying looking through my old video clips.
I aren’t very technical but a friend has told me about a computer programme called RIVA. I have just tried it on the above clip and it has worked!
It encodes my video automatically and lets me put it on You Tube. Isn’t that great!!!!!
I have been taking my Disgo Video Camera with me when I have been on my walks. I saw this nest swaying high on a branch. I wondered if it would still be there next year. I decided to take a short video of it and see if it is used next year. Yes I know – don’t I have anything better to do!
Isn’t it strange that birds build this nest here where the hedge is not a thick hedge, where the branches sway in the wind and where it is open to the elements.
A few yards away is a much thicker and more sheltered hedge that seems a better nesting place.
About a foot away is a prickly hawthorn that would have kept any predators away from the nest – BUT this nest was built in a hedge that would not protect them much at all.
Again excuse my voice – but I felt a video of an old nest on it’s own maybe wasn’t a good idea.
My daughter is getting married tomorrow in the Peak District. I’m setting off in an hour or two as it is going to be a Wedding Weekend! I have seen my daughter in her wedding dress and she looks beautiful. I thought I would put this short video on before we set off and I actually turn the computer off for the weekend.
I’ve got the bird feeding sorted out. I don’t suppose it would matter if bird food wasn’t put out for a couple of days but a neighbour offered so thats OK.
Habitat is important for wildlife. There are so many birds use this copse. Last night there was one bird singing sweetly among the crows.
I like to think it was singing –
‘BREAK NOT A BRANCH, NOR HARM A TREE ‘COS THIS LITTLE COPSE IS HOME TO ME.
The scent and sound was soothing.
Apologies that there is only a fleeting view of this sweet singing bird – at about 38 seconds in the top right of the video.
Thanks for watching this.
As I said habitats for birds are important. They may seem boring to us,but they are life saving for birds and so much other wildlife.
I think it is a chaffinch? Can someone confirm it is a chaffinch singing?
I thought I would take weekly photos of the corn growing and how it changes as the weeks go by.
We are lucky to live in a country that can grow our food like this.
This countryside is home to a lot of our native birds. They scurry in and out of the hedge bottoms, flit in and out of the hedgerows and sit on branches of trees. This countryside is there home – share it with them for a few weeks and share the changing colour of the corn.
Photo taken early April
Corn growing on 20th April
You won’t be able to see much difference, but believe me the corn has grown in just over one week.
In July or August the corn will be ready for harvesting and the combine harvester with spring into action like some sleeping beast that comes out of hibernation once a year.
It’s a skill knowing the exact time to combine the corn. Does anyone know, or would anyone like to learn
Then the morning comes and it’s bird feeding time again, as birds seem to queue up for breakfast at their Bird Cafe
The next day there was an early morning breakfast
