For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.

https://youtu.be/I7dYd-Ra8bk


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

I see Ring Ouzels in Devon getting a mention, best place to see them in Spring and Autumn is down around Langdon Hoe and St. Margarets near Dover.

Also a great place for Yellow-Browed Warbler in early October.

My Jays are a country couple and a very shy - The High Wield AONB starts at the back of my garden.

Re: For WHO's birders
Nurse, with my jays I think it's my complete lack of photography skills rather than the birds themselves.

They're probably sat thinking 'are you going to fucking take this or what, we've got a BBC springwatch Calendar photo shoot in 10'

Aalborg,

There has been a Rose Coloured Starling in Hythe for the last week.
Good fish & chips down there as well, so worth a visit.

Re: For WHO's birders
I'm quite surprised all your jays are shy, because mine are pretty bold. I don't see them often, but they're happy to come right up to my open door and a clue of times they've come into the sitting room for a quick smash and grab of the live mealworms on my desk.

Re: For WHO's birders
Zeb, I saw a jay in my street in Bristol this week, there used to be a couple around every day for a couple of weeks, but that was months ago and haven't seen one since til this week.

I love their colours but every time I try to photograph one of them they fleet away right before I press click.

How lovely for you both.

Re: For WHO's birders
When we built the house 25 years ago, we planted some trees to attract the birds.Rowan , Holly and Cotoneaster...
We have a glut of berries on two of the three this year and have been rewarded with Fieldfares and Redwings this last week...I'm told they winter on Salisbury Plain
Had a week in Cornwall & Devon last week and saw Meadow & rock pipits along with a Rose coloured starling at Hartland Quay...got talking to a local bird watcher in the shop and he showed us where to look.He said they're rarely seen west of Greece - he was surprised they weren't swamped by twitchers!

Re: For WHO's birders
I am jealous lab, that is great. I have never seen one.
Just usual suspects here; the sparrow clan are very noisy by day and the owls are having a chat tonight.
Did see the pair of Jays this weekend rather just hearing them. They are easier to spot now the leaves are falling and they are beautiful but like to hide away from us humans understandably..

There are grey wagtails on the Thames in the area of the new GLC building (the one that looks like a foetal woodlouse).

Re: For WHO's birders
Anyone else see the fall of Grey Wagtails in the outdoor malls of Westfield last night? Or are they always there?

So many, I could hear them over the singing Genk fans that were passing through!

Re: For WHO's birders
I quick word of thanks to the contributors of this wonderful thread
In a world of grief and a site of antagonistic fuckwittery, this has maintained a benign calmness in it's appreciation of the natural world and inhabitants
Always a smile riser this one, foxes to hedgehogs, birds of all type and now web evasion
And that's a sequence of appreciative smiles from the heart, good for the soul this small place

Re: For WHO's birders
Garden dilemmas...

Problem I have now is that the web in question cramps my movements in the garden unless I walk right through one of the threads holding the whole fucking thing together, and after watching him/her building it, I can't do that with a clear conscience.
