For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.

https://youtu.be/I7dYd-Ra8bk


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

That Golden eagle section in the Frozen Planet was staggering stuff... OK not so sure the mountain sheep/goat or whatever they were thought the same as they was being dropped from a very great height...

Re: For WHO's birders
AH, I didn’t catch the eagles on the IOW last week, saw a pair of ravens ,plenty of sea birds and as I was up early I loved seeing Canada Geese ,several flocks coming over from the mainland low over the sea and settling near Yarmouth,in the afternoon you could see them returning . Where I stayed there was a Buddleia in flower which attracted humming bird hawk moths . Just had a nice surprise up at Blackbushe airport ,a small group of lapwings near the runways .

In Kent, with rellies. Over the last couple of days: mixed flocks of swallows and house martins; moorhens; coots; mallards; water rails; Marsh harriers; kestral; buzzard; hen harrier; various other BoP I could not ID; pied wagtails; BILLIONS of starlings and house sparrows; a juvenile goldfinch feasting on a teasel (couldn't open my camera app in time!); meadow pippit; bearded tit (got a bit tearful over that spot); brent geese; jackdaws; avocets; little egret; turnstones; partridges; and many more.

Naturally I am in heaven.

Speaking of Eagle's.

Golden Eagle's picking up mountain goats and carrying them back to their nest and dropping them off the cliff. Amazing filming, worth watching to the end if not seen the like before.

Re: For WHO's birders
Why are thousands of our wild birds dropping dead? As an avian flu outbreak wreaks havoc across the UK and sparks increasing concern from the Government, GEOFFREY LEAN asks what will happen next and does the disease pose a threat to human health.

Feathered carcasses litter beaches on islands off Scotland and the east coast
Reserves, including one named after Sir David Attenborough, left devastated
The Government is increasingly concerned that the bird flu, as it is more commonly known, may mutate and cause another pandemic in humans.

Huge expanses of bare rock have appeared along normally thronged stretches of British coastline, emptied by the death of thousands of birds.

Feathered carcasses litter beaches on islands off Scotland and the east coast. And, in Brighton, seagulls have been dropping dead out of the skies.

A total of 23 Scottish islands have been closed to visitors. Precious wildlife reserves, including one named after Sir David Attenborough in Nottinghamshire, have been devastated. And dozens of pheasant and partridge shoots have been called off before the season has started.

It is all down to an outbreak of avian flu among our wild birds that some experts say is the deadliest variant so far recorded not just in Britain, but worldwide.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has called it 'heartbreaking' while the National Trust says the mass deaths risk 'undoing decades of hard work to restore nature'.

And the Government is increasingly concerned that the bird flu, as it is more commonly known, may mutate and cause another pandemic in humans — perhaps one far more deadly than Covid-19.

After all, that is what happened with so-called Spanish flu at end of World War I. It was caused by a similar strain of the virus to that now in circulation among birds (H5N1) and although estimates vary greatly, the former is thought to have killed 50 million people — about one in every 35 of those alive at the time.

Re: For WHO's birders
Exciting observation
5.45 and there was a right old racket, airborne racket
Screeching birds, and I mean serious screeching, woke my daughter
I went to the garden to investigate and four birds, bloody great things swooped majestically over the garden and out over the fields, travelling at some pace and very agile
Watching them for a few minutes it was obvious that they were a parent pursued by its two offspring with the other parent taking up the rear
Never seen nor heard the like before, big birds and distinctive call. I grabbed the phone and the birdsong app, could not believe what it came up with, tried it 4 times and the same result, checked out the web for images and yep, supported the app.
Still disbelieving, I searched the existence in these parts and yes, a breeding pair existed in Aylesbury, around 10 miles away
Peregrine Falcons ffs in N Bucks

Re: For WHO's birders
Blue tits make a right racket when they're near food which I've never really understood, I suppose it might be a call to others that foods on the go. To my next door's cat though it's more "I'm here, try and get me"...

Hearing is the least important sense when it comes to tits.

None are in the top ten for singing.
