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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.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

Štrba (Slovakia) on 4th June 2008

An overnight stop in the Tatra Mountains at a hotel in Starý Smokovec (few birds seen here, probably due to virtually all of the trees having been torn down by a .tornado in November 2004), was followed by a trip by narrow gauge railway to Štrbské Pleso, and then by rack railway to Tatranská Štrba. Here, whilst waiting for our special train to arrive, there were nesting Swallows, White Wagtails, and Serins to be seen, and also Woodland Ringlets again. On our way to Hungary, at a place I did not note the name of, I managed a record shot of a male Marsh Harrier from the window of the moving train.

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.
