There was a flock of at least 150 birds in the center of Berlin. They were flying from a big plane tree, down to a little shack`s roof with water standing on it to drink, flying big rounds over the whole block aswell and to smaller trees with red berries which they ate.

Lot to learn
Though I've not been busy with the camera, our garden cam has been busy, here is a small selection of the captured footage.
MAGPIE COURTSHIP: look out towards the right hand apple tree, around the middle of the garden, and there are two magpies displaying courtship.
PIGEON COURTSHIP: the ever common cock pigeon chasing the hen....
VISITING HERON; Not quite a regular visitor, but herons do turn up in the garden often enough, hoping to snaffle one or more of hte fish in the pond. Thankfully the netting seems to thwart their dreams.

In reply to Mart 1:
Mart 1 said:great footage Mike! Following you in YouTube now , too.
Thanks Mart, both for the compliment and the follow.
The footage is taken using the Bushnell Natureview cam, left out in all weathers on a Joby Gorillapod. All I do is download the footage, and trim out the unwanted bits.
