Oakthorpe Colliery on 1st May 2008

I visited Oakthorpe Colliery again, after an absence of just a couple of days. There were plenty of birds around - although nothing spectacular. I was, however, delighted to get some shots of a female Reed Bunting. I've plenty of photos of males, but this was my first reasonable encounter with an obliging female. I did see a grass snake, but it was too close for my lens to focus on (!) and, before I could back-off enough, it slithered away.

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.
