Some British Birds of Prey  (1950)

Life in the nest

An early film from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), Some British Birds of Prey explores the intimate nesting behaviour of some of Britain's most rarely seen avian life.

From golden eagles nesting in the glens of the Cairngorms Nature Reserve to short-eared owls ground-nesting in marshland habitats, the film captures rare footage of the parental care and behaviour of some of Britain's most intriguing bird species.

Two years after this production, the RSPB formed its renowned film unit which went on to produce many award-winning programmes.
