Nice series Despina

Video added :)

It's just a simple vid with the birds feeding at the beach, I hoped I wouldn't had to upload it in u-tube first, but that I could upload it to Noah, straight away...

I found that you have to write the You tube adress with www. to upload the videos. I would like to see your video.

Thank you so much for the comment, @LuisStevens...I tried to upload a video too, but I failed...
