Something for the weekend
One of Abby Eaton's finest, I do think. I'm not posting this as one of the birdsong quizzes, as this is now August and birds mainly stop singing because the mating season is over and they feel a little weak after rearing their young, and also need to moult.
So - Abby says, 'This is a fledgling Whitethroat in that wild scrubby meadow off Hindon Lane. I was worried you couldn't hear its constant 'looking for comfort' whrbbbrrrr beeps as I took it with my big camera, but you can!.' I asked about the colour as it looks almost like a night-time shot, but Abby explained that it's very narrow depth of field footage taken in very bright sunshine against dark backdrop of trees. So not something I could achieve on my mobile - but maybe you could!
