The Making Of Let The Desert Wind Blow
We took a packed lunch with us to the sand dunes in St Ouen in Jersey, Channel Islands.
We ate the food then set up the cameras and I made sure I could hear the audio to sing to.
Suddenly I said to my friend "What's up with the birds?"
The birds suddenly started twittering madly just for a few minutes, then they stopped as suddenly as they started. I actually said that sounded like something out of a sci-fi film.
Little did I know what the editing would reveal. A black speck passed, moving very fast across the screen on editing and on closer inspection
Look what we revealed - If you watch the video closely, you can see it flash across the screen taking about a second!

I'm really not nuts and I have an open mind about these things, but this is crazy.
What made the birds go crazy for those moments that they did?
