    Excellent video! I love the shot of the fox drinking from a pond at the beginning and it’s good to see the peacock is still around. There used to be two peacocks – the other one would often sunbathe in our garden, but we suspect a fox got it because we found its feathers all over the garden one morning.

    It’s wonderful to see so much nature in Whalley Range. I lived them for 15 years and it is a great part of the city for nature.

    Great video, thank you. Whally Range is such a gem for wildlife, I’ve lived in the area for about 14 years

    A lovely video about the wildlife in my neighborhood, Whally Range. Made a group of local wildlife enthusiasts.


  4. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing 🙂


  5. I’ve had a think about what I meant by saying I felt it was Bristolian. I feel it is artistic to let the subjects speak for themselves in the same way graffiti artists dont narate their art work in Bristol. They simply display it. It puts the emphasis on me to think about what these critters do before and after they wonder past the cameras for instance. This is a compliment as I love the artwork in Bristol. Hope this makes sense. I love the footage. Im going to try and replicate your approach in my local patch over the following year. Paul

    The video is great……….by the way, I spotted an owl on a tree outside my window (I live in Whalley Range). I had heard hooting sounds through the night on several occasions over the months but did not believe it could be an owl (thought it may just be a wood pigeon or collared dove except they usually sleep during night-time) so when I happened to look out of my window one night about 11pm last week I saw a tawny owl perched on the branch!
