Mobbed!

Tuesday morning’s otherwise quiet birdwatching session ended quite spectacularly with a group of people dressed as blackbirds running into the park.

I absolutely didn’t orchestrate this, I promise.

One Minute Birdwatching – Day 1 video

Edinburgh Day 1

I am typing this at my apartment in Edinburgh, where I have just seen a wren and a heron fly past. The birdwatching sessions at West Princes Street Gardens weren’t quite as dramatic, but there were plenty of gulls to pass the time. Check out the EDINBURGH RECORDINGS page for daily updates.

New video just discovered!

I’ve just found a video of one of the quietest performances I did at ANTI, uploaded only a week ago. It’s pretty funny, and just demonstrates why I should be more selective about the times of day I do this!

Edinburgh Fringe coming up

I’m in the process of sorting out the location for the next One Minute Birdwatching. I’ll be performing in the centre of Edinburgh twice a day from Saturday 4th August to Thursday 9th August 2012. Recordings of each group performance will be uploaded daily to create a body of ‘results’, which will vary depending on the times of day, number of birds, and number of participants.
