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.

My Garden - Waggy's back!

Every Spring and Autumn, for several years now, we have had a Grey Wagtail in our garden. After a brief visit a couple of weeks ago and then no further sightings, the day after we had two Nuthatches "Waggy" returned and has been visiting us on a frequent basis over the last three days. It can't be the same bird every year as, several times, it has been a 'first winter' bird that has arrived (as is this one). We only have a 'postage-stamp' of a garden, so I am quite surprised that we get a bird regularly twice a year without fail. I suspect they are birds of the same lineage, and it is in the genes. So far, this time, I have only managed to catch him when the light has been appalling - these pics were taken with the lens at 400mm, 1/80 second at 1250 ASA and f5.6!

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.
