I’ve spoken before about Ethology, and now the BBC and Open University, as part of their exceptional Great British Year series, have made a fabulous seasonal wildlife poster available for free. You can order a copy, or download, here: Great British Year.
It has featured some wonderful, typically world class, footage. Every week has had at least one real treat, from Kestrels competing with Barn Owls at Stow Maries, to sea urchins building their own impromptu sun shelters. Each episode covers a different season.
A particular highlight has come through the latest generation of thermal imaging cameras. Gone are grey shapes, or orangey-purple blobs. With these cameras, you can pick out individual feathers and fur in pitch darkness. You can see an example HERE.
