Was brought into the police department where I work, and was taken by a very kind citizen to keep for the night and will be brought to the wildlife rehab center in the morning. He had an injured wing, either hit by a car, or a bbgun we guess. He was found on the road by a citizen.

The first HD movie using the Luxmedia 12-HD camera and as you can see the jumping/skipping has been solved this is down to me using a class 10 memory crad, so if you intend on buying this camera use nothing less than a class 10 card. The rest of the camera has a great 3" inch screen to look at this is brilliant, works well with the zoom eyepiece I am using. Bad points the menu buttons are small, this won't be a problem in summer but winter with gloves on its IMPOSSIBLE, battery life is at the moment to me terrible, I need to work on this watch this space
