Bird Watching magazine started our Back Garden Birdfest today, and I tried to do a bit of live birdwatching at Deeping Lakes (filmed by BW art editor Mark Cureton and video genius, Jake Kindred). It was the first time I had seen these guys since mid-March, so lovely to see them in the flesh. The weather was shocking for filming, with excessive amounts of wind (and a certain amount of rain) hampering our efforts.
However, we did get to see nearly 50 species of bird around the reserve area. The videos are still available for checking out on the Bird Watching facebook page
