Notes on Use of This Blog



1. I believe that this blog is best viewed in Firefox. Internet Explorer does not seem to give the same level of functionality when viewing blogs.

2. 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.

3. I have a policy that I always reply to comments on my blog, even if it's just to say thank you.

Scuppered! - mid January, 2015

I've had a rather busy Christmas period and start to the New Year but decided, at the back end of last week to put a post together. It's then that the trouble started. In a nutshell, my photo editing software (Corel) gave up the ghost. I've spent days struggling to reinstate it, and it now seems that I probably have a hardware problem, rather than a software problem. My PC goes in for a full diagnostic check on Wednesday, and then I'll find out just how bad the news is going to be.

Anyway, I currently have no means of editing images, or producing new headers, that I'm familiar with (only Photoshop Elements, which will take a bit of a learning curve to get to grips with). I think I'll just sit tight until I know what I'm facing. It might be a while before I put up a proper post to this blog.

A post without any sort of image goes against the grain with me so here's one 'out of the magic bag', as Bob Bushell would say.

Barn Owl (Tyto alba) - on 30th March, 2013
Best wishes to all.
