Well, Thursday night is now officially Earthflight night. If you’ve not come across this programme, it is well worth clearing your Thursday evenings for. Now I’m a big fan of a wildlife documentary at the best of times, but this, filmed a lot from the air giving a real birds eye view, is truly amazing. Rather than get the description wrong, here’s the BBC’s description of the filming techniques.
I’ll sum up the first 2 episodes another time, meanwhile enjoy the highlights of Europe.
– A murmuration of Starlings swarming over Rome are pursued by a hungry Peregrine.
– Common Cranes fly over Venice on their journey from Africa to Finland
– Barnacle Geese journey with the man who reared them
Earthflight, BBC One, Thursdays at 21:00
