Garden Birds: The Movie

video

It's cold and windy outside, so I thought I'd try digivideoing some common garden birds through the bedroom window. It's not come out too badly, but there's no soundtrack.

The stars of the show:
00:00: Goldfinch and Greenfinch are enjoying some sunflower seeds together when
00:10: they're joined - briefly - by a Coal Tit
00:14: another Greenfinch turns up
00:18: a Great Tit and Blue Tit arrive simultaneously, then more Blue Tits and Great Tits

I'll have to try to film the Marsh Tit that's visiting every day at the moment.
