    Dear Ron and Ernie, Progress report. Thank you. I have achieved it and even resisted the temptation to write when there was a hiccup. I can’t imagine becoming a PS buff, I enjoy being out there doing it to much in fact Mrs. G B-S. who is the real photographer, and I have just retuned from...

    A program to make life easier.

    Dear Jeff, Thank you for your prompt reply. I have followed your line of help but could not get it to work. Years ago when we left our 086 machines behind and thought it was wonderful to have a 30gig HD there was a program available which did the job. There must be an equivalent program...

    A program to make life easier.

    Dear all, Is there a program which I can use to load multiple CDs onto my PC and have them operate as one unit and keep the integral search facility? E.G. I have 100 years of National Geographic Magazine which has a boxful of CDs and I have to keep swapping them perpetually to follow a...

    Id Please

    Dear Joern - Thank you for your very interesting letter, which I have read and re-read. 'My' geese were definitely grey, not brownish. The slightly brown cast on the breast was due to light reflected from the mud, as this disappeared when they moved on to different terrain. If you look at...

    Querquedula, You are addressing a man who does not own a television, a mobile phone, or a pager let alone a portable double helix kit. But I do have a goodish pair of binoculars and endless patience. Gordon

    Id Please

    Thank you all for your help. Nick Last year we stumbled upon Emperor Geese on the southern tip of Walney Island, a long way from where you live, but worth a visit. You’ll need your winter woollies, it’s not like Osea or Mersea. Obviously we asked the Warden about them as they weren’t in...

    Dear all, Spent some time watching these two. There were resident greylag at the site which were joined by a flight of many hundred. These two strangers were with this flight, came ashore and went to sleep. They were very nervous compared with the greylag and stayed together as a...

    Mary E, Jos and Michael, Thank you for taking the trouble to read and reply to the post. It is still early days, but no fatalities since installing the protection. Jos I would go into a decline if I had to live behind bars. Good Birdying Gordon.

    Window Strikes – A Cure?

    I have tried various patent stick-on devices without curtailing the appalling death rate among all our garden birds, especially the fledglings. Following a pilot project last year, this year I have hung floaty string from the top of each pane at 18 inch intervals. So far this has been very...

    Dear all, Thank you for a very interesting thread. My comment is slightly off topic. For over 50 years I was a paying member of national institution that was devoted to helping those in distress no matter what colour, background or creed until they introduced a class system of graded...

    Reducing the feed bill.

    Dear all, A sequel to the forlorn Sparrowhawk. It has cheered up enormously since the last picture. To day it enjoyed a few laps of the drawing room on the inside before settling and allowing me to capture it. Our well regulated home is now back to normal apart from the cat who is receiving...
