Yesterday was a beautiful day, perfect for photography, with a clear blue sky which reflected in the lake. This is my first video with my new camera so I hope you will forgive the imperfections. I am not used to walkng along while taking photos, I have not done it for a long time. There is a lot of camera shake. I hope you enjoy the bird song in the background. It is an ideal place to walk and we try to go there every day and feed the birds. At the beginning I am walking to the spot where I feed the robin and when I get there, he comes down. Adrian fed the ducks while I photographed. There is a quick flash of a lady with a beautiful English springer spaniel who walked into my view. I filmed a robin singing in a tree, he performed beautifully for me. If you listen hard you can hear the birds singing on the Heathland which is to the right of us. There were 3 crows sitting in a tree. Lots of seagulls and Adrian likes to feed them as well as the ducks and they make quite a noise and do an aerobatic display. Near the end you can just see the odd signet swimming towards us by the reed beds. A Jack Russell Terrier comes into view at the end. My battery ran out just before I was ready to finish which is probably for the best as I think its quite long enough. Hope you enjoy the film!
