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 For obvious reasons, they will not be published.

Waggy Time Again - on 11th October, 2010

Every autumn and every spring we get a grey wagtail visiting our garden on a regular basis. This has happened, without fail, for about five years now. It can't be the same bird - last year's was a 'first winter' bird, and the one that returned last week is also a 'first winter'. It's always a source of joy to us when "Waggy" returns.

Also giving us pleasure at the moment is the Garden's Robin. He's looking particularly handsome at the moment - and he knows it!! He spends a lot of time looking at his reflection in the window of my office, or in the conservatory window (as shown below). The rest of the time he is very actively patrolling his territory and singing away in the cotoneaster or rowan outside my office window.

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.
