One of the most famous canyons of the Sierra de Guara Natural Park (Aragón), the Vero River canyon (next to the village of Alquézar). A beautiful excursion by 8 Km very easy, a mixture of trekking and swimming.

Today I cycled to the Amsterdam woods and I saw...

A fine male pheasant

Reed bunting

Warbler - possible sedge, sadly obscured behind a leaf

Oystercatchers

Frogs - singing a full-on frog chorus!

_DSC6629-web.thumb.jpg.cd64e9d0d619fc54d069555e8fac828a.jpg

And hares

_DSC6657-web.jpg.f4541fa2a2e61948d6b423788d3db467.jpg

One thing I didn't get a photo of was a little grebe. It could sense me as soon as I approached the pool it was in (no hides anywhere in the woods, unfortunately) and would dive and swim away to safety. Next time, maybe.

Great series of pictures Russell.  Definitely looks like a Sedge Warbler mate. The wide  buff coloured stripe above the eye is very visible and distinctive

Thanks! It started slowly and I wasn't very hopeful, but a bit of perseverance paid off in the end. Still miffed at not getting that little grebe, though.  :dash2::lol:

Cheers, Steve. Warblers and waders - two groups of birds I've never been good at identifying, even in my days as a member of the Young Ornithologists Club!

Hi Guys,

I'm no photographer (hence first time I've posted any on here) :huh:

But I think these couple of snaps are pretty good...

This first one is of an Osprey (Sea Hawk) I think that is what the captain of the boat my family and I went on said anyway - It 'swooped' across the top of our boat, and I just pointed my phone camera and hoped for the best!

1825935588_OspreySeaHawk.thumb.JPG.697a232118ae0a91a0df93930d353229.JPG

This second one is a 'memory' one for me - It's of a stunning sunset after a wonderful day on Clearwater Beach with my family just last week :wink:

Sunset.thumb.JPG.5e83ad4cf3f83c4f2b11c809dd8d1794.JPG

Keep them photos coming!

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

All well 'n' good thanks Steve.

I'm still in 'cloud cuckoo' land having just returned home from a fabulous holiday - Disney was great fun but exhausting, so was glad to head to Clearwater for a few days. I say 'cloud cuckoo' land as to be able to have a holiday like that after 20 years of Whitby every year is amazing!

Ref photography, I have to admit, I never really saw the 'skill' in it. As far as I was concerned, you just point a camera and press the button :huh: Yeh sorry about that folkz! I now know that there is more to it - Focus etc etc aside, the fun bit, well skill really, is what is behind the shot, the waiting, and of course capturing a 'moment'.

The sunset picture looks even better when seen straight from my phone camera than on this larger computer screen - Can anyone tell me why?

All the best,

Len 'David Bailey' Dopson :thumbsup: :D

Here's me as a "Cave Man (Troglodyte)" as the title track by Jimmy Castor Bunch… This is a kind of underground canyon, Santa Elena, the birth of the Ara River on Bujaruelo / Otal Valley in Aragón (we come for a hole in a valley, descend some fossilized levels and get the "active" level, the underground river, and come outdoor for another hole in another valley)

Len ' David Bailey ' Dopson.  It's called pixelation.  Your phone screen is small and  made up of so many pixels , where as your computer screen is much larger with many more pixels.  Basically your spreading and stretching the pixels which causes the blurd picture on the pc screen.  

Take the picture on the computer and it will look stunning on the phone 🤣🤣🤣

What's Hamble ?

Courtesy of Wikipedia...

Quote

Hamble was a little doll and one of the original five toys but dropped from the show during the 1980s to be replaced by Poppy. According to Joy Whitby, creator of Play School, Hamble was chosen as representative of a more "downtrodden", humble background than the “middle-class” associations that the teddy bears had. She was disliked by presenters as she could not be cuddled.

According to the BBC website Chloe Ashcroft "did a terrible thing to Hamble. She just would not sit up...so one day I got a very big knitting needle, a big wooden one, and I stuck it right up her bum, as far as her head. So she was completely rigid, and she was much much better after that." (This was mentioned in a BBC Radio 4 programme called Trumpton Riots, available on YouTube.) In the edition called Through The Arched Window (in which the Radio Times said that Chloe Ashcroft would be interviewed and wasn't) the knitting needle incident was mentioned, however the person admitting to it was Julie Stevens.


Poppy, a black doll who replaced Hamble in November 1986, in response to changing attitudes in society (the Hamble doll was also getting rather fragile at this point.)

I stand corrected! I had no idea that there was a Poppy.  You just never know when I might need that information.  Your knowledge of Play School characters leaves me humbled, or Hambled in this case 🤔😉😊

Don't you think I did research first? I knew it wasn't Hamble, but couldn't ever remember another doll.  The "choose your window" bit came from a night in Osnabruck where I was seeing the pre Midge (Man)Ure Ultravox perform and was asked by some obnoxious paratrooper to do just that, and his intention was to throw me out of it.  Needless to say I saw the performance end, and he didn't.

Very wet Male Sparrow hawk  in the back garden. Taken through the kitchen window

Forgot to add that the bottom picture was taken from the upstairs bedroom window hence the difference in the background
