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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.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

Little Owls near Packington on 1st February, 2010

At the end of my last post, I stated that I had seen a pair of Little Owls at one of my LO sites. I found a single owl here before Christmas, and again on Christmas day, but had not seen one on any of my visits since. This is why I was excited to find two. I did not publish a picture in my last post because, although I banged off a few shots at ISO 3200 and 60th second (don't stand much chance with a 400mm focal length lens), at first pass I couldn't make anything of them. However, for one of the images, having passed it through my Nikon software, then through Neat Image, and finally through Corel Photo-Paint, I have ended up with an image which does, at least, show two owls!

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.
