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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.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

Rutland Water on 9th June 2008

I did not manage any Osprey pictures during my watch duty this day - in fact it was an unusually quiet day all round. I did, however, manage a few photos of some less celebrated birds.

Common Tern

When one sees Coots bumbling around, it is easy to forget how aggressive these birds can be. There was a real humdinger of a battle at one point, and the following photos show a little of this.



Coot Fight


Black-Headed Gull

Pheasant (juvenile)

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.
