Big Bill : the story of a heron( Visual )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: The grey heron is one of Europe's largest birds and in many respects one of its most attractive ones. It is estimated that in England and Wales there are some 25,000 herons, including about 5,000 pairs, and this film from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds tells the story of one of them. It starts with the coming together of the parents, depicting the building of the nest, the mating and the incubation of the eggs, and then follows the young bird's progress from birth to maturity. In the process it illustrates and discusses many aspects of the heron's behaviour, including its effective fishing technique. The film points out that the bird's only enemy is man, in particular the way he has polluted the environment. Awards: American Film Festival, New York (short version)

Flight for survival : the migration of birds( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Summary: A study of the migration of birds, this film points out that migration is a means of cashing in on seasonal food and that these mass movements are, in fact, essential for the survival of the species. Amongst the flights followed are the migration of swallows from England to South Africa, sanderlings from South Africa to Greenland, barnacle geese from Greenland to the Hebrides and, once again, swallows, this time from East Africa to Great Britain. Some of these journeys are almost beyond belief and the film explains how ringing and other aspects of current research have enabled ornithologists to study birds' navigational skills and map their migration routes
