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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.

River Trent from 17th to 20th September 2009

A four day trip down the Trent from Sawley to Newark had us passing a Red-crested pochard at very close quarters in the centre of Nottingham! Later, in the early evening we passed a Kingfisher on the bank (at some distance). On our return journey we came across a lone Common Sandpiper which allowed us to get quite close in our boat.

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.
