I am not for one minute going to suggest that I am getting back into love with Flickr, but lets just see what happens this time.
Took this closeup in Scotney Castle, a National Trust garden in Kent.

For the purposes of further enjoying my phone I have downloaded the app “RetroCamera” which is really rather good. Will be uploading my photos to Flickr again (since I have now mellowed in my attitude towards the site)

RSPB Reserve Dungeness

RSPB Reserve Dungeness

I am somewhat of a lapsed ornithologist, but today marked the day I got back to doing something I have not been doing doing for some time. The reserve is about 20 minutes from where I live, the RSPB reserve at Dungeness in Kent. Managed to snap a few photos too; although my only issue is the fact that the 300mm lens is simply inadequate for 1. small birds and 2. birds that are far away. I think to only way to do these birds any justice when it comes to photographs would be a 100-400mm lens with 2x extender.

Bird List

Somewhere on the reserve is the elusive Purple Heron. Needless to say it remained elusive . Bird list from today: Tufted Duck; Pochard; Goosander; Common Tern; Mute Swan; Greylag Goose; Canada Goose (with young); Ringed Plover; Shelduck; Linnet; Whitethroat; Reed Bunting; Willow Warbler; Coot (pretty much everywhere you look); Nesting Cormorants

Of these the highlight has to be the Reed Bunting, Pochard, Ringed Plover, Whitethroat and Linnet since these were the first time I can recall making positive identifications on these.

iPad 2 in London

I’ve had my iPad for eight months so pretty much convinced this is already a brilliant device. However, now getting hold of the new version you feel how much of a refined version this is. You want to pick it up and use it, plus it is a whole lot lighter than iPad 1. Will not be upgrading but still really like the new one. So it would seem do all the people in Apple’s Recent Street store, the rest of the store seems empty compared to the buzz round the three benches reserved for iPad2. What amazes me is that when people use these devices they login using their real accounts and never log out again. Erm. Okay.

New mobile device, new everything. Pink seems to be the colour of the season.
