Notes on Use of This Blog



1. With posts prior to 5th February, 2013 it is possible to see better quality enlarged images by clicking on the image. When finished, just click outside the enlarged image to return to the blog post.
With posts from 5th February, 2013 there is no advantage in doing this as the images are to the same size and definition.

2. I have a policy that I always reply to comments on my blog, even if it's just to say thank you.

3. Please don't submit comments that include your own web address. For obvious reasons, they will not be published.

4. I'm now on Twitter - @RichardPegler1

Staunton Harold on 24th April 2008 - My First Post

I am a little bit restricted in my birding for a couple of weeks, due to just having had a minor heart operation. Staunton Harold was ideal for a short visit as it is close to home, and there is a car park with views over the reservoir. There is a low wall to the car park, and feeders just over the other side of the wall. It is common practice to seed the top of the wall, so you can get close to the birds by using your car as a hide. Occasionally some 'gems' show up, and it is a good place for tree sparrows (although no good photos for me this time). I was only there for about half an hour and someone had beaten me to the best spot, but it was a very pleasant interlude.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
