Just picked up on this as I havent been able to look in much recently (my dad died on Monday 'sort of' unexpectedly). When Osprey's are spotted its usually fleeting as they are passing through.

The one place where they will hang around for a little while is Weir Wood Reservoir. There have been a couple recently but not logged as seen in the last day or so - but that doesnt mean they arent there. So if anyone really wants a reasonable chance of seeing one 'locally' then this is probably one of the best places. Here is the website sightings list:
http://weirwood.me.uk/​sightings.html (external link)

I have seen and photographed one myself at Burton Mill Pond the year before last but it was an unexpected sighting and only had my 70-200 on as I was out dragonfly hunting. I was fortunate that a real 'birder' was there to confirm thats what it was. He had been out birding, saw 'something' above, skidded to a halt and shot out of his car lol. When he posted the sighting on the web they couldnt quite believe that he saw one there at that particular time of the year, so I had to post my photo for proof lol.

Sorry to hear your news, Linda, if any of us can be of any help don't hesitate to ask.

I think you will find that the life span of inkjet is about 100+ years depending on the position to sun etc, I have left prints out at the allotment for nearly three years in all weathers and they are still ok but thats on a Kodak fogra pro paper which is a bit plastic.
The ones I like are Hahnemuhle Pearl which I have used for wildlife and weddings, Hahnemuhle Photorag for wedding BWs as it give a really dark almost velvet appearance and I love the texture, and if I was printing out a car type the C-type Fuji Gloss is very nice. But just to confuse you if you want a very good cant go wrong alrounder then go for the Epson Semi-Gloss which is excellent and nothing like the stuff you would print at home with. Any of these papers will out last me or you...

Great info Mark, thanks.

Linda... *hug*

If Facebook is to be believed, it's Sly's birthday today but my booze addled brain does recall an incident last year where we got the wrong day for someone and I think that was due to Sly having the same number of birthdays as the Queen :p Can anyone shed any light on this?

Sorry to hear about your loss Linda.

JD Sly's birthday is not showing on facebook for me if that helps.

And finally I was at a friends bbq last night and got offered two jobs which I think are first on here the first being a lesbian wedding and the second being the photos for a massage parlour's website, you meet all sorts at these things.

Sly's birthday is Monday IIRC, it's part of his witness protection cover not to divulge too much personal info online... *oops* :D

Many thanks everyone for your very kind words, it is really appreciated.

One thing I would like to say about him (if you all dont mind) and knowing we have some wartime fans on here, is that he was one of the unsung heroes that was in The Bruneval Raid (Operation Biting).

That is something that I am very proud of him for :D

Linda

I wouldn't say unsung heroes Linda the first British airborne operation of the war under the command of then Major John Frost and the 1953 film " The Red Beret " was based on this and other early airborne raids. Brave men non the less who all potential airborne forces are taught about during training.

Afternoon all.

Linda, i am very sorry for your loss. I am proud of all who serve or have served as it takes alot of strength.

I went to Tesco this afternoon to get the Waterproof camera Developed, and they no longer deal in Film.

I think i will just send it away.

Linda, I'm really sorry to read that your Dad has passed away, my condolences. He sounds like he was a very brave man.

Facebook tells me it's Sly's birthday too :confused:

Took some pics of my friend's kids yesterday. She's a single mum and things are sometimes tough, so it was lovely to be able to do this for her.

they were all great subjects, not at all shy, and in particular Daisy with the red hair was so natural in front of the camera.

Back home again, seems like ages since I left, the whole time has been a whirlwind. Total mileage has been over 2700 miles.

Ok, so places I've been:-

* Grasmere
* Easdale Tarn (walk up there almost killed me)
* Buttermere
* Coniston Water
* Castlerigg stone circle
* Sizeburgh Castle (gardens only since the castle was closed)
* Kirkstone Pass
* The Jumble Room
* Lindisfarne
* Cragside
* Hadrian's Wall omitted due to torrential rain
* Culross
* Glamis Castle
* Glen Lyon
* Ben Lawers
* Glen Quaich (most beautiful pass in the Cairngorms, except when it's in torrential rain)
* Aberfeldy
* Dalwhinnie
* Boat of Garten
* Western Highlands roads (every one's a winner)
* Oban
* Mull
* Iona
* Glenfinnan
* Seil (entered via the Bridge over the Atlantic)
* Largs

Might have been some other places that I've forgotten, I was pretty busy...!
