Bird on a Wire

Beddington Farmlands had a visit today from Glasshead Productions, a TV company that does science documentaries. They were doing a film that answers the question 'Why don't birds get frazzled when they sit on pylon wires'.
They got some images of Starlings on the wires and a Kestrel on the pylons. I've seen gulls and Lapwings sitting on the pylon wires before. In addition to acting as a resting area for birds the pylon wires can also present a well known hazard- we've had a few casualties at Beddington- including a Lapwing last year- click on this link for more:
