Winter Visitors / Candles Iceland :-)

An interesting day!! Spent five hours of the morning with a team filming  'Winter Visitors' for the 'County Channel'! What's that, I sense you thinking? It's an online TV channel for which Shropshire is a pilot site....It turned into n adventure on camera, bit of publicity for the site and of course the SOS :-)

The final edited film just 5 mins long is now live, check out here (Winter visitors) :-)  Let me know what you think :-)

Seriously.... Venus Pool has given me so many great moments and the SOS put a lot of effort into making it the superb reserve is, I thought it was time to personally put something back in (as if it's not already on the birding map already!)....

Ben Waddams putting DA to shame!



Crikey, where's the make up dept! (it was taken using a phone in what felt like sub-zero temps!!)


Hmm, I wonder what the edited 6 mins or so documentary will look like????


 It was a pretty good experience with a great team and we had a few laughs along the way ......


*******************

There was more excitement to come when I joined Kris and Tom at Candles early afternoon :-)

I was hoping for one of the Glaucous Gulls seen the previous day but settled quite happily for a juv Iceland Gull :-)

Taking on all the Herrings.....




Then posing nicely (albeit distantly)!



There was also a potentially 'new' 1st Winter Caspian Gull. Again quite distant and serious record shot territory but looked good to Tom, Kris and me whilst we await any dissent from more Gull Gurus....


A lovely setting, where's the camera crew when you need them!
