Sitting in the car on a cliff top carpark having a picnic tea the other day, I spotted a flash of colour as a small bird sped past the car window and settled on a branch of the straggly bushes infront of it. I quickly realised that it was a bird I don`t see many of about here, so out came my camera. It was a goldfinch. Such pretty little birds. But, I think quite camera shy, as this one sat facing the sea, so all I could get was sight of the back of him.
It makes me admire and realise the many, many, many hours of patience and time that the cameramen for nature programmes must spend, to get some of the wonderful pictures and films which they do.
