Launch of the Pennine Birds DVD

December 4, 2010 at 6:48 pm


After five years of filming and four months of editing the Pennine Birds DVD is now complete. This DVD takes us on a seasonal journey throughout the whole area of the Pennines, highlighting more than seventy of its birds. Included in this select group are fourteen species of raptor, (including all six species of Owl), Herons, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers, Waxwings and many more. There is an incident at a Peregrine eyrie that has never been captured on film before. In forty years of filming birds I have never before spent so long to produce a DVD packed full of quality birds. I am sure it is going to be well received.

If anyone wants to purchase a copy of the DVD it costs £15 plus £1 postage, please telephone or email me. Phone No 01706 631770, or you can e-mail me by going to the “Contact Me” link at the top of this page.

This weeks exceptionally cold and snowy weather has produced four consecutive days with more than twenty different species in the garden including a new bird in the form of a Pied Wagtail. Other birds that have fed include nine Long Tailed Tits, Mistle and Song Thrushes, Red Bunting, Wren, Wood Pigeon, Bullfinches, Nuthatch and all the usual common garden birds.

After a low temperature of minus thirteen on the third of December I found three Jack Snipe feeding together on Hopwood, my second highest ever number. There are still Waxwings around but they are proving to be more elusive.
