A Nightingale Sang in…………..

.
No, not Berkeley Square, but Paxton Pits, St. Neots. I went there this morning, in the hope of seeing these birds again. I wasn’t disappointed.

.
and to see and hear; how about a short video.
.





.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
.

Have a great weekend.

  7. What can I say other than wonderful: both the photos and to see it sing.

    Do you have a really long lens or are they fairly easy to get close to?

  10. Oh, Thank You, Thank You for sharing the Nightingale's beautiful songs. I so enjoyed that. Better that Mile High Apple Pie...if you lived closer, I'd bake for you for the favor of a bird song.

  11. What a wonderful little critter. Thanks for the video for sound effects. I have a juvenile grackle in my back yard that can't fly yet. Presumably it fell from its nest. Adults are keeping an eye on it and I'm doing my part by keeping my pets out of the yard. I sure hope it gets itself airborne soon.

  12. Love your captures singing out loud ;)

  13. Lovely captures Keith. Thanks for videoing this bird singing, so lovely to hear this bird and what is interesting it seems to have different phrases like the Song Thrush.

  14. Wonderful! Loved listening to him sing and seeing his neck move almost like a turkey neck!

  15. Thanks Kerry. At the moment some are fairly easy to get close to, as they are seeking out mates, and quite showy, singing from the branches.
    I use a 100-400 zoom, at 400mm most of the time. It means I don’t have to get too close, and disturb them. The video was done on a little Sony video camera, with a 60X magnification.

    Bob, thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Joanna, thank you. Their voices brighten any day, don’t they :)

    Thank you Dar. I’m glad you enjoyed the little video.
    I can almost taste that pie ;)

    Thanks Hilary. Hope your Grackle gets airborne soon.
    I’ve some little Blue Tits nesting, that will be leaving the nest soon. I’ll get my dog to stand guard I think. :)

    Thank you Pescalune. They are beautiful singers.

    Linda, thank you. Yea, they do have a good variety of phrases. All sung with such power too.

    Shelley, thank you. They are fascinating to watch, while delivering that remarkable song.

  16. Wow! These photos are spectacular, and I loved hearing the song on the video--varied and beautiful. I think I would have to stop and listen for a while if I encountered this guy on a walk. No wonder Shakespeare mentions him...

  17. Brilliant video clip Keith. The first Nightingale I have heard - such a range of sounds in its song. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Those images are breath taking, you managed to capture it so vividly, one can almost hear it singing. Yet the clip was a wonderful addition.
    Have a lovely weekend as well,
    xo

  21. Such a varied song not repetitive at all. Some of today's music makers should take heed. It's nice to put a video clip in now and then not just for the image but the sounds. First pic wins first prize.
