Henry & the Waxwings on BBC Winterwatch

Tonight my son Henry was a special correspondent on BBC Winterwatch.
The Waxwings also featured... Spoken like a true proud father.

Liz & I took all the video & photos' and they made a few changes to the video package we sent.
 Here are links to some of our original Waxwing stories, photos and videos:

  1. Nice! Now everyone knows Henry is a star. ;-) The birds aren't bad either.

  2. Well done Henry. Takes a special person to win the confidence of wild things and you've got that magic.

  3. A delight to see you on Winterwatch Henry....a star is born! Well done!

  4. Hi, Just found your blog, and I did watch the programme and particularly loved your film, well done, Julie (South Uist)

  5. Just beautiful, thank you for sharing these moments with everyone :)

  6. Congrats on the spot :)

  7. I saw your film on Winterwatch, it was really great, so nice to see your waxwings again!

  8. Hello there, someone pointed me in the direction of your blog and I'm so glad she did :) I just posted waxwings on my blog, mentioning how elusive they are... Your waxwings are quite the opposite and now I'm SO jealous! Can't wait to check out the rest of your photos.
