    Who thought doing building work on a nature reserve in the breeding season was a good idea?

    Wild in Aberdeen - City and Shire

    It's a Canon C100 mkii movie camera, I still have my dslr's, but have wanted to try making short wildlife clips for a while now and took the plunge the other week, it uses the same lenses I already have, so that is a bonus.

    Wild in Aberdeen - City and Shire

    To cut a long story short, I've been in hospital, had some major surgery which has put me out of action for a few weeks, so had a short drive to Gourdon harbour, just to sit by the water and test out my new movie camera. Just a short clip of some Herring Gulls having a paddle, very windy day...

    Quiet in the forest today, the strong wind might have been the reason, Frogs spawning in the ditches, Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming and this Siskin posed nicely for it's picture. Also a Vole(I think a Bank Vole) came along for a free feed too.

    Corncrakes in Harris and North Uist

    We stayed in a Cottage at Dalmore, there was a pair nesting in the garden, they really can be anywhere, seeing one however is another problem, I haven't seen one either despite hearing them, I even heard them in Norfolk in the 1950's

    A walk round the village fields, Skylarks singing, Buzzards displaying and Woodpeckers drumming, you'd almost think it was spring until you note the temperature out there!
