Hi Ben

My initial thought is that using flash for night time photography would disturb the animals and consequentally the results would not be a true picture of what animals usually visit the garden.  Although more expensive, I think that a night-vision camera would be much better.

Mine has been very unhappy since I retired and have had the heating on in the daytime during the colder weather.  They prefer it cooler.  I shall have to toughen up!

No, no sign of Fairygirl since Christmas


I think I've found the solution to Pdoc's problems ...

Oooh, Happy Birthday Gemma   Sounds as if Bucks Fizz would be the right medicine - all that Vitamin C

Hurrah! Pdoc - but keep those wellie boots handy!  The gales look as if they're going to be much worse in the northwest - but that being said we're travelling back from London late on Saturday night and apparently the last part of the journey is going to be by bus - if there are any branches down we may well be out all night!

Good morning Chicky   It's amazing how naked the house looks when you take the Christmas decorations down isn't it?  And yet they've only been up for a few weeks and the house is no different to the way it was the rest of the year.  Our brains are strange things
