While checking up on the Kittiwakes at Mumbles pier last weekend I took a few short video clips of the birds in action. It's a feature of my camera that I often forget is there and as a result rarely use it. In this case I was glad that I did remember as I was able to capture behavior that would just not have had the same impact with a still image. I am particularly pleased with the shot of one of the chicks feeding on regurgitated food from its parent as this was something that I had never seen before. You can also see just how hard the birds were panting in their efforts to stay cool.
