On 28th March (2018) I was out walking with my mum, when I spotted a couple of Nuthatches on the edge of a wood where we were just about to walk through, and I happened to notice that one of them was to putting mud around a hole in a tree, as it’s nest is in the cavity of the tree.
My mum and I was delighted to witness this and were both surprised at how close to the path it was. Recently I purchased my latest video camera – my first semi-professional one – a Canon XF300 and decided I would return on a day with better weather and test it out on the Nuthatches.
On 5th April (2018), the conditions were perfect, so I went to where I observed said behaviour and thankfully the construction was continuing and below is what I filmed:

Out of the videos I have made, these three videos are definitely some of my ‘favourites’, as I love Water Rails, Whooper Swans and enjoy feeding the birds, and playingaround in the kitchen. 😀
We were pretty much Frozen Britain recently, certainly in the West Midlands…
Packed full of fun facts (2011):
Thanks for your visit! 😉
Look up, look down, look all around! Up in the air or on the ground! 😉

Below are some videos from my past, showcasing nature to be seen in September and in October. I am actually quite pleased with my voice-over work from-back-in 2011! You might be happy to know, it is a skill which I’ve now honed.
Apologies for the inaccuracies in the Fungi video; pronunciation of hallucinogenic and apparently you can eat Amethyst Deceivers – but it is better to be safe than sorry! (No matter how good a recipe sounds!)
Thanks for visiting! x
Just a (very) short one, to say: Finally! I have an ‘About Me‘ page! 😀 I’ve decided I will be gradually turning my WordPress into my website, so it becomes more than just a blog!
In the past I used Webs, I believe my website there was looking ‘dated’ and I no longer do anything branded Nature On Screen – so I stopped using that site. Eventually Canned Wildlife will look great!
Thanks for visiting. 🙂
A lot of birds are quieting down now, but Yellowhammers 🐤 are continuing to sing away! Plus this is another great month for seeing some beautiful Butterflies! 🦋
(The videos below were made a few years ago)
Thanks for visiting! 😊
Last year I did separate videos of my interviews with the at gardening celebs / presenters and garden designers.
This year I thought it would be better to edit the interviews etc of the show, into one video and that’s exactly what I’ve done in the short video below:
