    Green Listing 2022 - Joint Thread

    I saw a robin at my bird bath today, the first of the year. They are surprisingly rare around here. I see that it is already on the Europe list, which hardly surprising!!

    Green Listing 2022 - Joint Thread

    Yesterday I finally saw a Little owl, which has been absent for a while, but is already on the list. Also saw a single swallow, struggling in the strong wind. I don't think it is on the Europe list?

    Information about the ports on my laptop

    Thanks Colin, I have a somewhat similar laptop and your example mentions mini HDMI so that seems to solve the problem!

    Information about the ports on my laptop

    I tried to get the manual online but failed. It a Thomson m/c, about 3 years old. I think it is HDMI, but there is a difference in sizes. I will probably take the laptop to a computer store just to make certain. Thanks for the replies.

    Information about the ports on my laptop

    The ones on the tv are as big as the USB ports, but obviously a different shape.

    Information about the ports on my laptop

    I have attached a photo of the side of my laptop. On the left is the power input, then a USB port. I don't know what the right hand one is. The symbol suggests that it is for another monitor or possibly a TV. Can anyone tell what it is for and the correct name for it? So that I can buy the right...

    It was total luck. I stepped outside last night to look at the stars, and heard the owl. You will probably beat me to something else!

    I have just heard an Eagle owl. Does hearing, but not seeing, count?

    Black redstart?

    Richard, don't worry! I can see that the subject is a bit of a minefield and a bit beyond an old fogey such as I. What are cairii and paradoxus?

    Black redstart?

    Good idea. Though it is a long wait until September!

    Black redstart?

    Thanks to you both. My( old) book shows very little white, hence the doubt.

    Black redstart?

    Very early swallows

    Yesterday, in the nearest village called Cantarranas, I saw 4 swallows sitting on the wires. It seems very early!
