    Nice shots, Words … and the dove is spectacular!

    BTW, I’m having greater and greater difficulty getting your pics to load … they’re taking an inordinate amount of time. Are you doing something different?

      dW, thanks. We’ve got a sizeable colony of collared doves at Falmer. It’s been a good year for them.

      I’m not sure what the problem is with the site loading. It’s been ok here (I’ve tried from other locations without any issues) and I haven’t made any major changes in the last two or three months. It uses caching which should make it faster. Is it the same with all browsers? (just wondering whether a script is causing it to stall).

    I guess a new camera is there 😀

      Darko, not quite. I should get it Friday (Saturday at the latest). 😀
