A First Sighting

Thursday was another not too bad sort of a day for winter, some sunshine during the day dried up the rain which had fallen in the early hours of the morning.

I’m taking winter as a time to sort out my 2011 video. I like to make sure that the most important clips are backed up and that any unwanted stuff is deleted from my computer. I was a little surprised when I came across some clips from RSPB Old Moor taken last April which had been left on the clipping room floor. This was the first and only time we had spotted a Reed Bunting so I didn’t want to loose this bit of video.
I’ve uploaded the best of the video to Youtube. It was taken on a visit last April so it’s good to know that in a few weeks time Spring will hopefully be arriving.


  1. I've never seen a Reed Bunting, you got some great video of it. I liked the shot of the Bullfinch, they're such colourful birds, well, the male is. My mum and dad used to have them in their garden before they moved house.

  2. Spotted a female bullfinch in our garden this week. Hope it's not on the look out for buds on our apple trees.
