I've just been watching a video which I think is absolutely brillaint, and
demonstrates all the postive features of the Life of Birds, without any of
the negatives (faked sequences, leaping from continent to continent, wrong

It is The Call of Kakadu by David Curl. It is the story of a family group of
Blue-winged Kookaburras in a patch of woodland in Kakadu, and their life
during the yearly round of flood, fire and drought. The photography is
brilliant, there is a shot of a croc getting an Antilopine Wallaroo which is
definiately not faked, and basically it is just the video that you or I
could make if we were talented photographers, and camped out in Kakadu for 5

I don't know how widely available it is (I was lent it from a friend who had
it from David himself), but the Internet address to get information about it is:
