  • Short Summary

    Footage of bird colony on rocky outcrop - probably in Wales.

  • Description

    No title.

    Shot of an island from a boat. Shot of many gulls flying through the sky. Scenic shot of a rocky coastline. Caves at the water's edge. A large bird colony settled on a rocky outcrop. Various shots of birds taking flight from rocks. C/U of an egg on a nest. A baby bird emerges. It struggles to climb out of the egg. C/U of several young fluffy white birds.

    M/S of man walking amongst hundreds of birds on a cliff side. L/S of birds flying across the sea. Intertitle suggests that the birds are Gannets. Shot of birds settling on a rock. High angle of birds bobbing about on the sea. A cliff side covered with birds.

    Note: I have guessed that this is the item "Wild West Wales - some nature studies by Capt. Head." However, it may also be "The Grand Slam Sliders". The former was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 601, the latter an item in Pathe Pictorial 599.
