  1. Thanks for that update. There wasn't much on the village website. Unusual to have a North door, but I guess the slope makes it sensible.
  2. Thinking about it, I wonder if there was a vestry that was demolished at some stage, in which case a wash basin of some sort would make sense.
  3. I'd never realised how much structure there is in the elytra surfaces before.
  4. Blue tit boring -- I don't think so. (As far as I know they only use existing holes to nest).
  5. If you have a composter, then when it gets a bit warmer the worms come to the top and collect under the lid (I've often had a great ball of worms fall out of the lip of the lid when opening it to put stuff in).

    I got a plug-in one for the 70D, think I used it once—to record bread rising. That's a component that can't be interchanged with the EOS-3 as Canon's pro cameras use a different remote connector from the consumer models.
  7. I'd think the biggest issue would be finding anything to eat at this time of year.
  8. This one was about the "typical" body-only price but with a lens, and appeared to be sound (and has so far been so). It was (along with the EOS-1 line) the top of the range film SLR (think 5-D). Introduced in 1998, the 45-point autofocus was not matched in the DSLR lines until, I think, the 5D MKIII. Interestingly the eye-focus has not yet been used in any digital camera, I've seen varying reports about how good it is, that's for the next roll as it needs to be calibrated. As far as the more normal autofocus goes I was more easily able to lock onto the starlings on the bird table than with the
  9. As I mentioned in the chat box, I took delivery of a "new" Canon EOS-3 last weekend. So of course here are a few from the first roll (HP5+) though it. A few from around town with the 28-80 lens that came with the camera: King Alfred (again): Betjeman Millenium Park Lock Lane (again): And a couple with Canon lenses I already had: Apple Bud (with the Tamron 180mm Macro lens, this one feels quite a bit more comfortable on the 3 than on the 70D). And finally a starling in the plum tree through the kitchen window with the big Sigma (150-600).
  10. Not quite four and twenty baked into a pie, but 6 or 7 together on the lawn this morning: 6 through the kitchen window: And 7 with the automatic camera:
  11. The gloomy mood is well caught, but do I see a bit of digitization banding in the clouds in the second image?
  12. Like most snakes it would rather run(?) away than waste venom. What are folks shooting in your area? I see a discarded shotgun cartridge.
  13. Glad that I use a proper razor.
  14. Indeed, a splendid set. And remember, more often than not the hawk goes hungry.
