River Views #192: Winter on the Ruhr 31

I completely forgot that I had shot some video back in January and February down at the riverfront as a companion to the photo series – and now with my faster uplink, I’ve finally been able to uploaded them. Here’s the first one – as usual, the embedded video is self-hosted, but there’s also a Youtube version.

Robinsong

Here’s the video of that little Robin who was using the Maple as a broadcasting tower. I filmed this handheld, so it’s a little bit shaky and I didn’t want to use any filters, but you can really hear the Robin sing its heart out! This embedded version is locally hosted, but you can also watch the Youtube version here, although the quality might not be as good due to the reprocessing.

River Views #162: Autumn on the Ruhr 62

I ran out of photos from this series, but there are still some videos I took last Autumn when I was down at the riverfront. This is the first one of a three-parter I originally uploaded to Youtube in November, featuring Coots, Ducks and lots of Seagulls. This was the first time I was trying to use my new camera to shoot video, so it might be a little bit shaky in places – and the sounds in the background were from the department store almost directly behind me being torn down!

Balcony Birds in Motion

I shot this a couple of days ago on the balcony when it was too dark to take photos, but still bright enough to film! The first half is an unidentified LBB (Little Brown Bird, perhaps a Wren?) taking a bath and the second, of course, a Bluetit feeding on the Meisenknödel.

Woodpecker Wednesday – The Video

The Woodpecker was busy on the tree for such a long time on Wednesday that I had time to shoot some video as well. It wasn’t easy to keep the camera steady, but with the additional Youtube stabilization it turned out surprisingly good. Also, turn the sound up to hear the pecking echo around the backyard!

Cloudy Timelapse

I completely forgot to post this – I made a timelapse with the help of my smartphone last month and it turned out very well. I used an app called LapseIt to take the photos and then put them together on the PC with VirtualDub. I’ve also made a second one, but I haven’t had time to upload it yet.
