Wildlife of Windermere and Wild Goose Chase

Last year, in our second year, for one of our modules we had to create some short wildlife videos. The first one is a short 2 minute video on Barnacle geese and the second is a 5 minute portrait of Windermere.

Starling murmuration

Tonight I visited Gretna Green watch the Starling murmuration. I watched in amazement as the sun set over the motorway. I enjoyed the contrast between a busy motorway and one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles that can be seen in the Autumn.
The shapes that they make in the sky are incredible and apparently there was around 750,000 starlings!

Trip and Cliburn Moss

Been on a trip for the weekend filming and photographing seals, this is a photograph of one of the pups that I managed to capture

Today I went to Cliburn Moss to see what I could find and my friend Cain wanted to try out his new lens.

I was sat by a tree watching this squirrel and a few others and i heard a rustling noise coming towards me.
It was clearly a dog and was sniffing around a lot.
It must have scared this little fox cos it was running and came and stood right in front of me

I was in shock so i only managed to get one picture but I was so happy :)
