    The Six Nations

    Being a life long supporter of Wales I hope they pull something out of the bag this year. But saying that, and I'm choking saying this; but England look the team to beat, now I'll go and wash my mouth out with soapy water.

    How Do You Dry Your Onions.

    I just pull them, cut most of the top off and dry them in the greenhouse. Took them up a week ago.

    Scotlands New Dd Limit

    I'm totally in agreement with the new lower limit, as are most of the people I've spoken with here in the village I live in, in Scotland. One of the points talked about is how many drinks you can have at home in an evening, without being over the limit the following morning. I'm sure a few drivers will be caught out during the short term.

    A Couple Of Barn Owl Shots

    We have a few Barn owls around that I've managed to get the odd good shot of. I've found that if you stand still when you first see them you can then squeak them in like a Fox.

    Peregrines Nesting In Buildings??

    Well it's a nice sunny day again here in Scotland, wow two days in a row. I'll be out at that cottage this evening and will stay to see if those Peregrines return. I'll take a shorter lens too for when the light fades to see if I can get a shot of them. I understand that they nest in cities and towns on buildings, but I have never seen one enter a building. Maybe they are just using it to roost in, still strange though.

    Peregrines Nesting In Buildings??

    Yesterday evening I was sat watching a dilapidated cottage, in the hope of photographing a Barn owl which resides in a nest box in there. An hour before sunset a pair of Peregrines flew overhead one went behind me and the other flew down to sit on the edge of a very small quarry overlooking a pond. It took off after about ten minutes and disappeared. At 20:15 the light was fading and wasn't bright enough to use my long 600mm lens so I walked the 100 yards to the road to sit and wait to see which of the many opening the owl would use to exit, for tonight sorte. Within five minutes the Peregrines returned and entered the building through part of the collapsed roof, I couldn't believe it. One hopped up onto a rafter for a couple of minutes and I had a good view of I for a couple of minutes through mi binoculars. I stayed until 21:00 and never saw them leave or the owl for that matter. Now we have a healthy population of Peregrines here, but the nests I've observed have all been around the sea cliffs, which are less than half a mile from the cottage. So after that long winded explanation have you heard of or no of any Peregrines that have nested within a building. This cottage is going to be my focus for the summer, to see if I can get another good Barn owl shot like this. It took me six months and probably a thousand shots to get this. <iframe src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/httpwwwflickrcomphotosmanninagh/8725119931/player/" width="800" height="520" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

    Opinions On Hunting - A Short Survey

    And that looks like a total load of bollacks.
  11. Adobe will not be releasing anymore versions of Photoshop or software from the suite. They are going to a Creative Cloud monthly/annual subscription. Prices being bantered around the web are of a £400 subscription per annum, which Adobe haven't denied. I have both CS5 Ex / Cs6 Ex so it won't really bother me, but to anybody new getting into photography and needing a good editing programme it's going to be a costly addition to there budget. There is free software online but it really doesn't have all the bells and whistles that Photoshop has. I believe there are ways of acquiring both CS5 Ex / Cs6 Ex I'd be looking for it know if you plan to use it future.

    Malwarebytes Cock Up

    It's not happened to me, but my mate got caught out. We had to do a clean reinstall of Win7 to sort it out. Never though it would have been caused by a corrupt update from Malwarebytes lol.
