Light was beginning to fade by the time I got round to topping up the bird feeders. There were lots of birds singing. At the top of one tree was what I think was a Dunnock so I took the camcorder out to film it singing. As usual, as soon as I set the tripod up the bird flew off to carry on singing out of sight. Fortunately about a hundred feet away there was a Robin making sure others knew where his territory was so I turned the camcorder in his direction.
The camcorder was on its maximum 70x zoom but it still managed to pick out the song amongst the 'pink, pink, pink' of a Great Tit, the constant cooing of a Collared Dove and others.
