    Panasonic TZ60

    I am considering getting the above as a replacement for a failed Fujifilm compact camera. I cannot find another thread reviewing this camera so if there is anyone out there using one I'd like to know their thoughts on it (or does the lack of comments on BF speak for itself). thanks

    Guernsey in October

    We are making a trip to Guernsey in October. After making the booking it occurred to me that perhaps it has similar possibilities as Scillies. Is there likely to be good bird migration opportunities and is there anything I should be looking out for that I am unlikely to see at home in Surrey?

    Wild Colombia with Nigel Marven

    Just finished viewing this series of 4 programmes on the Eden channel. Brilliant coverage of wildlife in that country although he does ham it up a bit but it has particularly good filming of just about every form of life, including humans, in a way that makes me think he will be vying to take...

    Gropper in Surrey?

    Last Friday I made the unforgiveable mistake of walking through my local patch at Riddlesdown (NE Surrey) without the bins. (Well I was walking home from the train at the bottom of the hill). Up at the top of the hill where the land is totally flat and just about to pass by the old tree that...

    Waves in the Sky

    Just had to talk to someone about this. I work in Tolworth, Surrey (UK) and generally park up about half a mile from there. This enables me to walk away from the main road for about 500 metres. On most days it is great and at the moment I start walking about 40 minutes from sunrise. Today...
