Great Crested Grebe chicks, with their distinctive stripped plumage, have to be one of the cutest on the broads. This video diary, filmed over ten weekends, follows a family of grebes and long the way we meet some of the other local wildlife.
I hope you enjoy watching it, as much as I did making it.
Filmed between May and July 2015 on the scenic English waterways known as the Norfolk Broads. The majority of footage was recorded with a Panasonic DMC-G6 with 100-300mm lens. With some wide shots and close-ups filmed with a Panasonic HMC-FZ1000 in 4K and resized. Nearly all shots were used without modification with only a few clips adjusted to correct exposure. This version has been highly compressed for uploading so unfortunately this has reduced the picture quality.
During the making of this video I always made sure that my presence did not disturb the wildlife that I was recording. Filmed and edited by Douglas Bacon August 2015.
