I haven't really followed the details but there's been several sighting of Sei whale in Scotland recently and I know it has been seen and Kinghorn today. What I don't know is how well it's be showing. Anyone got any better details?
I'm presently planning two trips, although I'm not booking anything yet. One to Uganda - fairly easy to plan as I should have gone there last year, and my gorilla permits have been moved to this year - and one to France, if Uganda isn't possible/sensible, complete with itineraries. so if it does...
When I try to record a video using my desktop and plugged in webcam, I get this message when I hit the record button. The webcam works fine when I used it for a meeting. Any help much appreciated as I am teaching my class from home at the moment.
Digiscoping with Olympus TG-6 and Nikon 30-60 WA
I tried digiscoping with my phone: bought an adaptor completely failed and it's floated around my boot for several months. That is my only experience. But now I have bought an Olympus TG-6, my thoughts are that it would be better anyway...
As a teacher I am being provided with lots of good stuff to help with online learning but it's sometimes in PDF form. Is there a easy and free way to convert, sometimes large, PDFs to Google Slides?
I'm trying to use some software that appears to have installed but when I run it I get the attached message. I'm pretty sure I had the same message last time I tried to install something - I gave up on that. Any help much appreciated as it's driving me nuts!
Although it looks like we might be able to be a bit more mobile soon I have set myself the task of seeing how many orchids I can see on my exercise cycle ride. Suffolk isn't the best county in the country and it's early days. Two so far early purple and green-winged.
A lot of the rest are...
Very high on my 'must do' trips - which is likely to be put off for a year or two as I, hopefully, do the trips that I had planned for this year - is looking for snow leopard in Mongolia. I may well be looking for people to team up with.
This report of a trip of extremes. Boy did he pay for...
Although I am a big fan of looking for things myself rather than having a guide, I'm told that this isn't advisable with Beesley's lark. There is a website for the lark:
Unfortunately I have had no response when I have used the email on...
I've spent a lot of today failing to identify a lot of the fungi I've photographed over the last few days. These are just some of them. If anyone could help, I would be very grateful. All from woodlands on the east of Ipswich.
I think the first one is fairy ring champignon, but I could well be...
I'm having another year of struggling to identify fungi. I know a bad workman blames his tools and all that but I'm looking to expand my selection of books - Roget Phillips, David Pegler and Courtecuisse and Duhem. What would people recommend?
Have any members visited Katonga Wildife Reserve? It sounds good but I can find very little information on it. There is a very basic campsite in the reserve but I'd be keen to avoid that so as well as bird/wildlife information anything on more salubrious places to stay would be good...
