Finally excited to confirm today my partner's sighting over last couple of days of what he thought was a Hawfinch. Indeed it is - on the patio feeding on spilled sunflower hearts 5ft from the window !! Clearly it has been in the vicinity for at least 3 days now - a first for our garden.

It is hoped that the vast majority of images lost from the gallery due to a server failure in February have now been restored, however in doing so it appears that the wrong captions are now with a minority of images, or wrong images with captions. This is probably because the images have been uploaded in the last couple of weeks have the same filenames as ones recovered that were uploaded further back in the past. It should only have effected images uploaded in the last couple of weeks as behind the scenes there will effectively be 2 database records pointing to the same photo. If any of your photo's are affected and you would like them corrected please contact us to delete the image on the gallery then re-upload your images. From now on when you upload a new image, the system will check for a conflict and rename the image if necessary. We hope that makes sense and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you.

Heard G.S.Woodpecker drumming outside house this morning . Bird on wooden electricity pole , but drumming on plastic / metal box halfway up it , which amplified the sound ! Fascinating to watch it drum , then stop and listen for a reply before having another go .
