Hi Everyone.
My garden is a haven for birds. Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Bullfinch and Goldfinch. Two Robins. Two male and one female Blackbirds, Jays, Woodpecker, Wren, Nuthatch, Blackcaps, White Collar doves, Jackdaws, a whole family of Sparrows, and many Magpies, (Up to 7 at a time) I am very lucky and I think the mild climate here in Cornwall and the influence of the Gulf Stream may be the reason for some of them visiting my garden. It is semi tropical you could say.
Today I saw a young Black and Pink Magpie. Stunning looking bird. It has been in my feeder box on and off all day.
If I post pictures in this group do I lose my copyright to the pics and can other people share them without my permission. Not being selfish just want to clarify.

Best wishes to you all.

Hi Eric and a warm welcome from me too.

If you read our Terms and Conditions, and the Gallery Guidelines you will see that you retain the copyright of your pictures. No-one is allowed to copy them or use them without your permission. In the same way you should not upload any pictures that aren't your own.

I think that putting a copyright symbol on Gallery images distracts from the content, but that's a personal view; I guess for that reason not many people do it.


I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.
