Media notes

This video shows the spectacular Capercaillie Mating Game. For two days and nights I was hiding in a blind shooting this spectacular event. There is only one week in the year where mating occur, so you need some luck to get footage like this! Ambient sound recorded with a pair of shotgun mics. Elevation: 798 m. Date added to IBC: June 22, 2016.
