Recently Bill Oddie presented a documentary about 100 years of filming nature and took us through the development of nature films and programs over the years.
It can only be described as amazing the progress that has been made and it was a wonder to be watching wildlife during these different periods all due to the adventurous spirit of the film makers and what they had filmed for people to see.
The quality of wildlife programs continues to improve and in my opinion are a valuable assett in providing an entertaining and informative wildlife education for both young and old.
Watching wildlife from the doorstep!
At our first home we were fortunate to have an extensive area of waste ground in front of us where back to back houses had been demolished. From our door step that went straight out on to the street pavement we used to be able to observe flocks of Goldfinches, Linnets and sparrows.
And at dusk waves of Starlings heading for the Town
Center to roost for the night.
Watching wildlife on waste ground!
Once I observed a family of seven Kestrels while walking across what was deemed as waste ground.
Watching wildlife in your garden!
This is the easiest way of all. There is so many ways in which we can be watching wildlife in our own garden.
