Located off the east coast of Shetland is the Isle of Noss, an island with spectacular cliffs and moorlands that are home to over 150,000 seabirds during the summer months, all of which have returned for the breeding season.
‘Life on the Edge’ is a short film that takes a closer look at the seabirds nesting on Noss, illustrating the delicate nurturing side of feisty gannets, amorous puffins, and the close living quarter of guillemots whilst hinting at factors that may be contributing to the decline of certain species.
Shot in great haste as we encountered a fast moving group of Cupuchins. The old patriarch of the group sent two young males to draw our attention away from the females carrying young capuchins. As the young males behaved somewhat aggressively towards us, the rest of the group of about 12-15 capuchins quietly disappeared from view. The Reserva Los Cedros of North West Ecuador is a biological jewel containing around 15000 acres of primary pre-montane wet tropical forest and equatorial cloud forests. It is well worth the 2 hour mule ride to visit this remote reserve, but be sure to stay at least a week to explore it adequately.
Included some out-of-focus footage for its entertainment value!
