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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.

National Memorial Arboretum on 13th September 2009

I went on one of Dave Scattergood's monthly birdwalks. This one was to the remarkable National Memorial Arboretum, near Burton-upon-Trent. We soon found a good number of Yellow Wagtails in with Pied Wagtails. A Hobby also flew over. We found that they had planted a huge wild flower meadow, and this will need further investigation next year! After the walk, I went to nearby Whitemoor Haye to sit and have my picnic lunch. To my delight, a stoat came lolloping up the road - shame that my photo has soft focus!

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.
