When birds behave like fish

Together with wildlife photographer Jamie Gundry I produced this short film about the phenomenal wading birds of Snettisham on the north Norfolk coast. Tens of thousands of birds visit the Wash – Europe’s largest mud flats – to feed on the rich wetland ecosystem. The Wash only floods at very high tide and when it does the wading birds take to the skies in their thousands. We were there to witness this extraordinary event. (Footage filmed in winter and summer).
