RSPB

We’ve been spending some time filming for RSPB Saltholme recently, capturing some of the wildlife that can be found on site, to help engage and attract visitors.

Its a constant bustle of life, thousands of wildfowl from Wigeon to Pintail and Barnacle Geese feed on the grassy banks, which are then hunted by Peregrines, Sparrowhawks and Marsh Harriers, to sneaky Seals, and huge murmurations of Starlings. All surrounded by an immediate man-made presence.

Our favourite encounter from filming so far has to have been this Water Rail, a stunning, secretive bird of the reeds, feeding right in front of the hide!
