Video Scope

I just wasn't quick enough to catch these on "stills" - sorry about the A603 background

I am trying out a cable release on my F31 - was quick enough to catch some views - a week later, I have had to resort to videos

Upupa epops, Flitwick



Photos taken by Michelle Harris.


Sandy RSPB



Unfortunately not showing as well as the Flitwick bird it gave views before moving out of sight onto the heath and after some time flying into trees and then further afield and not being relocated thereafter.

Coronation pit, Stewartby.




The Red footed falcon showed well on a couple of occasions amongst a count of 14 hobbies, with a raptor backup of 2 kestrels 1 sparrowhawk and 5 buzzards.

Hoopoe - Flitwick




Hoopoe, Flitwick, 12th May 2008 by Steve Blain. An absolutely fantastic bird. Many thanks go to the householder who notified the RSPB initially about this bird in their Flitwick garden. They also let me in to take these shots.
